Eligible to Claim the Child Tax Credit?

For every child under the age of 17 by the end of the tax year that you claim as a dependent, you may be eligible to claim the Child Tax Credit. The total credit amount is $1,000 per child.

The credit is limited if your modified adjusted gross income is above a certain amount.

If the amount of your Child Tax Credit is greater than the amount of income tax you owe, you may be able to claim the Additional Child Tax Credit.
