Return to credits

I have a question about the child tax credit related to child tax credit earned income. How much do I have to earn to claim the additional child tax credit?

To be eligible to claim the additional child tax credit, which is a refundable credit that offsets the tax you owe dollar for dollar, you must have made at least $3,000 in earned income for the tax year in which you want to claim the deduction.
