How many children are you allowed to file and how many children do you actually get credit for
There is not a limit of how many children you can claim as dependents. There is a limit of three children for the earned income credit. So even if you have more than three kids you cannot get more EIC. But there are other child-related credits. Enter all of the children who qualify as your dependents on your tax return and let TurboTax do the calculations.
