Amend   Child Tax Credit Table of Contents Introduction Useful Items - You may want to see: Qualifying Child Amount of CreditLimits on the Credit Claiming the Credit Additional Child Tax Credit Completing Schedule 8812 (Form 1040A or 1040)Part I Parts II–IV Introduction The child tax credit is a credit that may reduce your tax by as much as $1,000 for each of your qualifying children. Amend The additional child tax credit is a credit you may be able to take if you are not able to claim the full amount of the child tax credit. Amend This chapter explains the following. Amend Who is a qualifying child. Amend The amount of the credit. Amend How to claim the credit. Amend The child tax credit and the additional child tax credit should not be confused with the child and dependent care credit discussed in chapter 32. Amend If you have no tax. Amend   Credits, such as the child tax credit or the credit for child and dependent care expenses, are used to reduce tax. Amend If your tax on Form 1040, line 46, or Form 1040A, line 28, is zero, do not figure the child tax credit because there is no tax to reduce. Amend However, you may qualify for the additional child tax credit on line 65 (Form 1040) or line 39 (Form 1040A). Amend Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 972 Child Tax Credit Form (and Instructions) Schedule 8812 (Form 1040A or 1040) Child Tax Credit W-4 Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate Qualifying Child A qualifying child for purposes of the child tax credit is a child who: Is your son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, brother, sister, stepbrother, stepsister, or a descendant of any of them (for example, your grandchild, niece, or nephew), Was under age 17 at the end of 2013, Did not provide over half of his or her own support for 2013, Lived with you for more than half of 2013 (see Exceptions to time lived with you , later), Is claimed as a dependent on your return, Does not file a joint return for the year (or files it only as a claim for refund), and Was a U. Amend S. Amend citizen, a U. Amend S. Amend national, or a resident of the United States. Amend If the child was adopted, see Adopted child , later. Amend For each qualifying child you must check the box on Form 1040 or Form 1040A, line 6c. Amend Example 1. Amend Your son turned 17 on December 30, 2013. Amend He is a citizen of the United States and you claimed him as a dependent on your return. Amend He is not a qualifying child for the child tax credit because he was not under age 17 at the end of 2013. Amend Example 2. Amend Your daughter turned 8 years old in 2013. Amend She is not a citizen of the United States, has an ITIN, and lived in Mexico all of 2013. Amend She is not a qualifying child for the child tax credit because she was not a resident of the United States for 2013. Amend Filers who have certain child dependents with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). Amend   If you are claiming a child tax credit or additional child tax credit for a child you identified on your tax return with an ITIN instead of an SSN, you must complete Part I of Schedule 8812 (Form 1040A or 1040). Amend   Although a child may be your dependent, you may only claim a child tax credit or additional child tax credit for a dependent who is a citizen, national, or resident of the United States. Amend To be treated as a resident of the United States, a child generally will need to meet the requirements of the substantial presence test. Amend For more information about the substantial presence test, see Publication 519, U. Amend S. Amend Tax Guide for Aliens. Amend Adopted child. Amend   An adopted child is always treated as your own child. Amend An adopted child includes a child lawfully placed with you for legal adoption. Amend   If you are a U. Amend S. Amend citizen or U. Amend S. Amend national and your adopted child lived with you all year as a member of your household in 2013, that child meets condition (7) above to be a qualifying child for the child tax credit. Amend Exceptions to time lived with you. Amend   A child is considered to have lived with you for more than half of 2013 if the child was born or died in 2013 and your home was this child's home for more than half the time he or she was alive. Amend Temporary absences by you or the child for special circumstances, such as for school, vacation, business, medical care, military service, or detention in a juvenile facility, count as time the child lived with you. Amend   There are also exceptions for kidnapped children and children of divorced or separated parents. Amend For details, see Residency Test in chapter 3. Amend Qualifying child of more than one person. Amend   A special rule applies if your qualifying child is the qualifying child of more than one person. Amend For details, see Special Rule for Qualifying Child of More Than One Person in chapter 3. Amend Amount of Credit The maximum amount you can claim for the credit is $1,000 for each qualifying child. Amend Limits on the Credit You must reduce your child tax credit if either (1) or (2) applies. Amend The amount on Form 1040, line 46, or Form 1040A, line 28, is less than the credit. Amend If this amount is zero, you cannot take this credit because there is no tax to reduce. Amend But you may be able to take the additional child tax credit. Amend See Additional Child Tax Credit , later. Amend Your modified adjusted gross income (AGI) is more than the amount shown below for your filing status. Amend Married filing jointly - $110,000. Amend Single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er) - $75,000. Amend Married filing separately - $55,000. Amend Modified AGI. Amend   For purposes of the child tax credit, your modified AGI is your AGI plus the following amounts that may apply to you. Amend Any amount excluded from income because of the exclusion of income from  Puerto Rico. Amend On the dotted line next to Form 1040, line 38, enter the amount excluded and identify it as “EPRI. Amend ” Also attach a copy of any Form(s) 499R-2/W-2PR to your return. Amend Any amount on line 45 or line 50 of Form 2555, Foreign Earned Income. Amend Any amount on line 18 of Form 2555-EZ, Foreign Earned Income Exclusion. Amend Any amount on line 15 of Form 4563, Exclusion of Income for Bona Fide Residents of American Samoa. Amend   If you do not have any of the above, your modified AGI is the same as your AGI. Amend AGI. Amend   Your AGI is the amount on Form 1040, line 38, or Form 1040A, line 22. Amend Claiming the Credit To claim the child tax credit, you must file Form 1040 or Form 1040A. Amend You cannot claim the child tax credit on Form 1040EZ. Amend You must provide the name and identification number (usually a social security number) on your tax return for each qualifying child. Amend If you claim the child tax credit with a child identified by an ITIN, you must also file Schedule 8812. Amend To figure your credit, first review the Child Tax Credit Worksheet in your Form 1040 or 1040A instructions. Amend If you are instructed to use Publication 972, you may not use the worksheet in your tax return instructions; instead, you must use Publication 972 to figure the credit. Amend If you are not instructed to use Publication 972, you may use the Child Tax Credit Worksheet in your Form 1040 or 1040A instructions or Publication 972 to figure the credit. Amend Additional Child Tax Credit This credit is for certain individuals who get less than the full amount of the child tax credit. Amend The additional child tax credit may give you a refund even if you do not owe any tax. Amend How to claim the additional child tax credit. Amend   To claim the additional child tax credit, follow the steps below. Amend Make sure you figured the amount, if any, of your child tax credit. Amend See Claiming the Credit , earlier. Amend If you answered “Yes” on line 9 or line 10 of the Child Tax Credit Worksheet in the Form 1040 or Form 1040A instructions, or line 13 of the Child Tax Credit Worksheet in Publication 972, use Parts II through IV of Schedule 8812 to see if you can take the additional child tax credit. Amend If you have an additional child tax credit on line 13 of Schedule 8812, carry it to Form 1040, line 65, or Form 1040A, line 39. Amend Completing Schedule 8812 (Form 1040A or 1040) Schedule 8812 contains four parts, but can really be thought of as two sections. Amend Part I is distinct and separate from Parts II–IV. Amend If all your children are identified by social security numbers or IRS adoption taxpayer identification numbers and you are not claiming the additional child tax credit, you do not need to complete or attach Schedule 8812 to your tax return. Amend Part I You only need to complete Part I if you are claiming the child tax credit for a child identified by an IRS individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). Amend When completing Part I, only answer the questions with regard to children identified by an ITIN; you do not need to complete Part I of Schedule 8812 for any child that is identified by a social security number (SSN) or an IRS adoption taxpayer identification number (ATIN). Amend If all the children for whom you checked the box in column 4 of line 6c on your Form 1040 or Form 1040A are identified by an SSN or an ATIN, you do not need to complete Part I of Schedule 8812. Amend Parts II–IV Parts II–IV help you figure your additional child tax credit. Amend Generally, you should only complete Parts II–IV if you are instructed to do so after completing the Child Tax Credit Worksheet in your tax return instructions or Publication 972.
