Child tax credit

Why did Turbo tax not give the tax credit for my 9 year old stepdaughter that lived with us the whole year? It did on my 2018 taxes! She meets all the qualifications.

That is odd.  Was she claimed as a dependent on your return?  Did you enter her SSN?  If she qualifies as your dependent and you entered your income, the software automatically gives you the CTC.

 

Look at your 2019 Form 1040 to see the child-related credits you received

Yes, her ss# is there. didn't change a thing from last year. So is this an amendable issue? How should I proceed?

Did you already e-file?  No reason to click anything that says "amend" if you have not filed yet.

 

If you did not yet file--try this.  Go to My Info and delete her, then re-enter all of her information.
