Premium conversion does not affect your EITC. The EITC is based on Total Earned Income (TEI), which includes both taxable and nontaxable earned income. Taxable earned income includes money earned as wages, salaries and tips while nontaxable earned income includes salary deferrals and reductions. Premium conversion falls under the category of nontaxable earned income because salary is reduced by an amount equal to a health insurance premium payment and a health insurance premium is then paid with these pre-tax dollars. The EITC amount is unaffected by premium conversion because premium conversion shifts health insurance premium payments from taxable to nontaxable earned income, both of which are included in the TEI when calculating the EITC.
