Last tax season, someone claimed my dependents, and I did not send in information to prove I should claim them. Would this affect me getting the earned income credit this year?

No. Your eligibility for the earned income tax credit (EITC) for any given year is based on the set of facts for that particular.year. If you have a qualifying child, your earnings and adjusted gross income are within the requisite limits, and everyone has a Social Security number, you would qualify for the EITC regardless of how you filed in a prior year.
