Notice: Historical Content

This is an archival or historical document and may not reflect current law, policies or procedures.

For tax year 2021 and later, you will no longer use Publication 972 to figure your child tax credit and credit for other dependents. Instead use Schedule 8812 (Form 1040). Schedule 8812 (Form 1040) and its instructions have been revised to be the single source for figuring and reporting the child tax credits and credit for other dependents. The instructions now include all applicable worksheets for figuring these credits.
