Turbo tax is saying my child doesn’t qualify for the child tax credit but qualifies for the other dependent credit. I’m very confused. I didn’t receive the advanced child tax credit when I should’ve qualified.
I file head of household, single mom. my child is 8. Nobody else could/would’ve claimed my child.
how do I correct this??
I did accidentally click “credit for other dependents” I tried to amend it but turbo tax just keeps saying she doesn’t qualify but doesn’t tell me why she doesn’t qualify for the child tax credit.
there isn’t another parent who could’ve claimed her.
go back through all the questions for the dependent. make sure that the question did (dependent's first name) pay more than 1/2 their living expenses is answered "no"

the other thing you can try is to delete the worksheet for the dependent then go back and re-enter. carefully read each question. also visit the CTC section
