What is the Child Tax Credit?
The Child Tax Credit (CTC) is a refundable credit that reduces families’ tax liability by a certain amount per qualifying child. If the overall tax due is reduced below zero because of the credit, that amount is refunded to the taxpayer(s). This credit phases out for high-income earners and has increased for 2021 for certain situations.
