My child was 17/18 during 2023. She was living at my home 8 mo. until going away to college ( still visits on weekends). Do I qualify for tax credit?

She did get a part time job Nov & Dec of 2023 and filed her own taxes. Would I still qualify for child tax credit?

No not the Child Tax Credit.  Has to be  UNDER 17 on Dec 31.  You can still claim  her as a Other Dependent.   Make sure she put on her return that she can be claimed on someone else's return or  your return will reject.  Away at college still counts as living with you.

Yes, you can claim your child as a dependent based on your information which would allow the 'Other Dependent Credit' because of her age.

TurboTax will calculate this as you enter your child as a dependent.
