Form 8812

Additional Child Tax Credit

Use this form to figure Taxpayer’s additional child tax credit. The additional child tax credit may give Taxpayer a refund even if do not owe any tax.

To be eligible for refund the taxpayer must have earned income above $11,300 and owe less in tax than the credit amount.

Line 1:
The amount on this line comes from line 7 of child tax credit worksheet. This is the maximum amount of child tax credit for which the taxpayer is eligible.

Line 2:
The amount on this line comes from line 53 of Form 1040, line 33 of Form 1040A, or line 48 of Form 1040NR.

Line 3:
If line 2 is less than line 1, the difference is the amount the taxpayer may be able to claim as an additional child tax credit providing earned income credit is sufficient. If line 2 is more than line 1, and line 3 is zero then taxpayer is not eligible to take the additional child tax credit and the rest of the form will be blank.

Line 5:
If the total earned income on line 4a is NOT more than $11,300, then box No, gets checked and line 6 will be “0”.

If line 4a is more than $11,300, then box Yes gets checked and difference of $11,300 and line 4a entered on line 5.

Line 6:
If earned income on line 4 is $11,300 or less, and the taxpayer does not have three or more children, the taxpayer cannot take the additional child tax credit. The rest of this form will not calculate.

If earned income on line 4 is over $11,300 or the taxpayer has three or more children, the additional child tax credit is shown on line 13.

Part II - Line 7 through 12:
The program will calculate lines 7 through 12, only if the taxpayer has three or more children and the additional child tax credit figured on the excess earned income over $11,300 shown on line 6 is less than the available credit shown on line 3. Otherwise, lines 7 through 12 will be blank.

Line 13:
If the taxpayer has less than 3 qualifying children, line 13 is 15% of earned income over $11,300, but not more than the available additional child tax credit on line 3.

If the taxpayer has 3 or more qualifying children, line 13 is smaller of line 3 or line 12.
