I have a client, MFJ, taxable income $182,582 itemized deductions $24,129 they have 2 children. A newborn born in 2018 and the other child born in 2011.
On the Child Tax Credit Worksheet Proseries will complete Part 1 with the newborn on line 1 with a $2,000 value and the other one on line 2 with a $500 value. Both must be on line 1 as they both are citizens and have SSNs.
I tried with other SSNs, change the relationships from Daughter to Son, changed their position on the information worksheet and still nothing. But if I change the DOB of one from 2011 to 2016, problem solved now I have 4,000 on child credits.
I'm about to remove the file and start all over but now I concerned about all my previous returns.
I can post some screenshots if need it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The same thing was happening to me. It was giving them the credit for other dependents. After reading the respones, I realized it was because I hadn't entered the parent's birthdates yet. As soon as I entered them, the child tax credits calculated!
