How do I receive the Fed Gov $4,000 Tax Credit?

Level 15

Get your taxes done using TurboTax

You do not receive $4050 for having a dependent.  The "$4050 tax break" you saw means that since you have a dependent, $4050 of your income is "tax free."  Your "dependent deduction" lowers the amount of your income that you have to pay tax on. It is not a refund.
