2012 Child Tax Credit Print E-mail

The Child Tax Credit for 2012 will once again be $1,000 per qualifying child. This tax break will reduce the tax burden of millions of middle income families. Here's how it works.

First, it's a credit, not a deduction so whatever your tax bill is, you get to take it off what you owe the government. So if you owe Uncle Sam $5,000 and you have 3 qualifying kids, you will only owe the government $2,000. The credit is in addition to any exemptions you already get, so those kids are costing you a lot less as long as you have earned income. In certain cases where you have no tax due you can apply for an Additional Child Tax Credit that will give you a refund.
