If your return was rejected due to your dependent's SSN being used on another return, the first thing to do is to verify that you entered the SSN correctly in the return. If it is incorrect, fix it and resubmit it. If it is incorrect, that means that someone did indeed use your dependent's SSN on a return. The IRS typically grants the tax benefit(s) related to dependents to the first taxpayer to file a return. It is not uncommon for a parent who qualifies to claim the child to have their e-file rejected because the child was already claimed by another taxpayer. If you qualify to claim the child under the law, file a paper return and claim the child as a dependent. This will start action on the part of the IRS to determine who actually qualifies to claim the child. You will receive mail from the IRS when they start this process.

The Child had to be UNDER 17 on Dec. 31 to get the Child Tax Credit.  See Child Tax Credit FAQ

In order to claim the child tax credit on your 2020 tax return, your dependent has to be 16 or younger as of Dec 31, 2020.   Since she is over the age to claim the child tax credit, you should receive a credit for $500 (Credit for Other Dependents) on your tax return.   

 

To qualify for the Child Tax Credit, your child must fit all of these requirements:

  • Be under age 17 at the end of the tax year
  • Is your son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, adopted child, brother, sister, stepbrother, stepsister, half-brother, half-sister, or a descendant of any of them (for example, a grandchild, niece, or nephew)
  • Has his or her own Social Security Number
  • Lived with you for more than half the year
  • Didn't support him/herself (didn't pay more than half their own expenses)
  • Is a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or U.S. resident alien
    • Residents of Canada or Mexico wouldn't qualify
