To switch which income year you are using to claim the additional child tax credit,

  • Click on Deductions & Credits
  • Edit Child and Other Dependent Tax Credit
  • Continue to Do you want to use last year’s earned income?
  • Say No and TurboTax will use your 2020 income.

You can use the 2019 Adjusted Gross Income instead of your 2020 income when claiming the child tax credit.  Here's how:  

 

  • Click on Deductions & Credits
  • Edit Child and Other Dependent Tax Credit
  • Continue to Do you want to use last year’s earned income?
  • Say Yes.

Here is a TurboTax article about the CTC.

Daughter has child born in May 2020.  How do we claim him (her return, my copy of Turbo Tax),  How do we claim his $1,100 ($600 from 1st stimulus and $500 from 2nd stimulus?)

When you enter the child as a dependent in the My Info section of the program correctly, the stimulus payments for the child will be included as a tax credit on the federal tax return, Form 1040 Line 30.

To add a dependent:

  1. Open or continue your return in TurboTax, if you aren't already in it.
  2. Select My Info in the left navigation.
  3. Select the Add a dependent button.

When we ask how many months your newborn lived with you, always answer The whole year, even if your baby was born on the last day of 2020.

Enter all of your federal return information as you would normally. During the Federal Review, we’ll check if you meet eligibility requirements for the stimulus payment. If you meet the requirements, you'll see a It looks like you qualified for the stimulus, did you get any payments? screen. We'll ask a few questions about any payments you've already received and then let you know if the Recovery Rebate Credit applies.
