If you only made $1548 in 2022  then you have no taxable income and are not entitiled to any CTC of any kind so all you can get is $610 of the EIC  plus any taxes that were withheld plus any other refundable credits if you had any.    Only in 2021 were the rules extra generous where you did not have to have any income to get the full refundable ACTC.

Not sure why your post is headed "no help from community"


There are no other posts in the user forum under your username, so it does not look like you have sought help from the community until this one and only thread.


Your post is so short and lacking in information that we can only guess what you mean.   No one can see your tax return or your screen.   If you mean, as the above reply assumes, that you only had a small income and are only receiving a very small amount of earned income credit as a refund, that may be correct.  The generous child-related credits given out in 2021 were changed for 2022 tax returns.  For 2022, the child-related credits are based on the income earned from working, and if you only earned a small amount, you will not be eligible for the large amounts you might have expected based on your previous tax refund.


Provide more details so we can be more helpful.
