If you have picked a resident state that is one of the 50 states and your mailing address is GU, PR, AS, MP, or VI, the resident state must match your mailing address.
You need to either change your state of residence to your state-side mailing address to claim the EIC or change your mailing address to GU, PR, AS, MP, or VI, and do not claim EIC. The mailing address state and the state or residence must match for EIC claims.
