Am I Eligible for the Child Tax Credit?

  • Basic income information and amounts for items such as tax liability and credits
  • If you have been provided a Form 8332 (or similar statement) allowing you to claim the child as a dependent, you can consider that the child lived with you for more than half of the year. Keep this in mind when answering related questions during the interview.
