Dependents, Child Tax Credit and Earned Income Credit: Who Can Claim Whom?
Join us this March to learn about a foundational aspect of individual tax returns - claiming dependents. Tax law lays out two types of dependents – qualifying children and qualifying relatives. The rules have some overlap but there are significant differences between the two. A qualifying child opens the door for more tax benefits and credits than a qualifying relative.
We will also discuss the oddities relating to divorce and claiming kids. We then shift into covering some of those benefits, namely the child tax credit and the earned income credit, as well as head of household filing status. These credits can help low-to-moderate income families and workers reduce the tax they owe.
We close with a discussion of Form 8867 – tax preparer due diligence relating to various credits and head of household filing status.
