It won't let me get all my child tax credit


The child tax credit can only reduce your tax liability down to zero.  It is not a refund.  If you have no tax due, then you may not receive the full amount of the $1000 Child Tax Credit

If your child turned 17 at any time during 2017, then you will not receive the child tax credit.

If you are claiming the Child Tax Credit for a child who was born in 2017, make sure you said in Personal Info that the child lived with you all year and that you entered the child’s SSN.

The child tax credit is reduced by $50 for every $1000 of AGI over these limits:

Married filing jointly                                                            $110,000

Single, Head of Household or qualifying widower               $75,000

Married Filing separately                                                      $55,000

*You can see the amount of the child tax credit you got on your Form 1040A on line 35; on Form 1040 line 52

If you received the Additional Child Tax Credit Form 1040A line 43, Form 1040 line 67
