Please be aware that they need to be an U.S. resident alien to qualify for the Other Dependent Tax Credit. Please review the all requirements here: What is the $500 Credit for Other Dependents (“Family Tax Credit”)? 

 

Please follow the steps to add your children into TurboTax to see if you might qualify for the Credit:

  1. Login to your TurboTax Account 
  2. Click "My Info" from the left side of your screen
  3. Scroll down to "+Add a dependent"

 To review the Credit:

  1. Click on the Search box on the top and type “Credit for Other Dependents”
  2. Click on “Jump to”

Dana,

Thank you for your response.

They have ITIN numbers and they do not qualify for Child Tax Credit, but they qualify as Other Dependant according to IRS web site check and it should be added to line 19 on 1040 form. Below is some screenshots from the IRS website

According to IRS Pub. 972 -  Child Tax Credit and Credit for Other Dependents

 

A person qualifies you for the ODC [Other Dependent Credit] if the person meets all of the following conditions:

1. The person is claimed as a dependent on your return. See Pub. 501 for more information about claiming someone as a dependent.

2. The person cannot be used by you to claim the CTC or ACTC.  [Child Tax Credit or Additional Child Tax Credit]

3. The person was a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or U.S. resident alien.

resident alien for tax purposes is a person who is a U.S. citizen or a foreign national who meets either the “green card” or “substantial presence” test as described in IRS Publication 519 - U.S. Tax Guide for Aliens.
