Dependents & Exemptions

Can I claim a child tax credit for my grandchild that lives with me that I claim as a dependent ?


A qualifying child for the child tax credit must be a grandchild, son or daughter, adopted child or eligible foster child. That child must live with you and you claim her as a dependent and she is under age 17 at the end of the year and a citizen or resident of the US. If so, then you can claim her as a qualifying child for the child tax credit.
