The Child Tax Credit

The Child Tax Credit allows you the possibility to reduce your Federal tax liability by $1000 for each qualifying child under the age of 17.

In order to claim the Child Tax Credit, the child in question must be under the age of 17 as of the end of the tax year. They also must be a son, daughter, adopted child, stepchild, or eligible foster child. They could also be the descendents of any of those which would mean grandchildren. They must be citizens of the United States or resident aliens. You have to have provided at least half of the support for them.

The children in question would have to have lived with you for at least half of the year as well. There are some exceptions to these criteria. There is also a phase out income level. The phase out income level is the point where the percentage of the credit begins to decline until it is no longer allowed. For a married couple filing jointly this phase out level is $110,000 of adjusted gross income. It is $55,000 for married filing separately and $75,000 for all others.
