Child Tax Credit and Credit for Other Dependents - YouTube video text script

CHILD TAX CREDIT AND CREDIT FOR OTHER DEPENDENTS
     MANY PARENTS CLAIM THE CHILD TAX CREDIT TO HELP WITH THE COST OF RAISING CHILDREN.              
     THIS YEAR… THE CREDIT MAY HELP EVEN MORE PARENTS BECAUSE THE INCOME LIMIT FOR THOSE WHO QUALIFY HAS INCREASED TO 400-THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR MARRIED COUPLES FILING JOINTLY AND 200-THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR ALL OTHER FILERS.
    ALSO... THE CREDIT AMOUNT FOR EACH QUALIFYING CHILD HAS INCREASED TO TWO-THOUSAND DOLLARS. 
     THIS CREDIT APPLIES IF… THE CHILD IS YOUNGER THAN 17 AT THE END OF THE TAX YEAR… YOU CLAIM THE CHILD AS A DEPENDENT… AND THE CHILD LIVED WITH YOU FOR MORE THAN HALF THE YEAR. 
      BE SURE TO HAVE A VALID SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER FOR EACH QUALIFYING CHILD BEFORE YOU FILE YOUR TAX RETURN.  
     YOU COULD GET UP TO 14-HUNDRED DOLLARS AS A REFUND FOR EACH QUALIFYING CHILD EVEN IF YOU DON’T OWE ANY TAX.
     IF YOU CAN’T CLAIM YOUR DEPENDENT FOR THIS CREDIT… YOU MAY QUALIFY FOR A NEW CREDIT… ”THE CREDIT FOR OTHER DEPENDENTS.”
     FOR THIS CREDIT… YOU MAY BE ABLE TO CLAIM QUALIFYING CHILDREN WHO DO NOT HAVE THE REQUIRED SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER… OR A QUALIFYING RELATIVE… SUCH AS A CHILD 17 OR OLDER… OR PARENTS… OR OTHER RELATIVES THAT YOU SUPPORT.    
     YOU COULD REDUCE YOUR TAX BILL UP TO 500 DOLLARS PER QUALIFYING PERSON.
