How Do I Apply For Other Forms of Assistance?
Child Tax Credit (CTC)
Families with earned income who claim dependent children under age 17 on their federal tax return may qualify for a refund or credit. Most families eligible for CTC can also file for the Earned Income Tax Credit. If you cannot take the full CTC, you may be eligible for the additional child tax credit if your earned income is more than $3,000. Taxpayers with three or more children may also be eligible for additional child tax credit regardless of their income. For more information click here.
