How much do we get back per dependent in 2010?

I just caught wind that we will get $3000 for 1 dependent, $5000 for 2, and $6000 for 3 and more. Was this just a rumor or is this true????

  • You can claim $3650 exemption for each dependent. You can get a max of $1000 credit (return) per child in the Child Tax Credit. EIC will depend on your income.

  • You don't get money back, you get a reduction in your taxable income, which will lower your tax liability.

  • I was wondering about this same thing. I hadn't heard that but I was wondering how many kids would qualify for the child tax credit.
