<P>Because he is 17.&nbsp; To get the larger credit, like you received for your daughter, your child must be<STRONG> under 17</STRONG>.&nbsp; You should still receive a $500 credit for him though.&nbsp;&nbsp;<A href="https://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tips/family/child-tax-credit/L9ZIjdlZz" target="_blank">Child Tax Credit</A></P>
