Why is Schedule 8812 on my return?

Schedule 8812 (Child Tax Credit) is generated if:

  1. A child that's being claimed under the Child Tax Credit has an ITIN instead of a Social Security number, or
  2. You're getting the Additional Child Tax Credit.

Otherwise, if you're claiming the Child Tax Credit and these 2 conditions don't apply, you don't need a Schedule 8812.
