About Schedule 8812 (Form 1040), Child Tax Credit


Use Part I of Schedule 8812 (Form 1040) to document that any child for whom you entered an ITIN and for whom you also checked the "if qualifying child for child tax credit" box, is a resident of the United States because the child meets the substantial presence test and is not otherwise treated as a nonresident alien.

Use Parts II–IV of Schedule 8812 to figure the additional child tax credit. The additional child tax credit may give you a refund even if you do not owe any tax.
