Federal>Deductions and Credits>You and Your Family>Child Tax Credit
The IRS is sending out letter 6419 to you. It will show the amount of advance child tax credit that you received during 2021. Enter the information from that letter carefully.
The remaining amount of CTC that you can receive will show up on line 28 of your 2021 Form 1040. Then it will calculate down to the refund you see on line 35a or the tax due on line 37.
Click on Tax Tools on the left side of the screen. Click on Tools. Click on View Tax Summary. Click on Preview my 1040 on the left side of the screen.
NOTE: The CTC is indeed a “credit” that can be applied toward any tax liability that you would otherwise have to pay as “tax due” to the IRS.
@mariahspeedy10 - are you using TT or are you doing this manually?????
14i is the line that is pulled over to Line 28 Form 1040. This is automatic with Turbo Tax (which is why i ask if you are completing this manually????)
Line 28 is the additional CTC you are entitled to.
something doesn't make sense......
