I just attempted to file my taxes on my own and it said i was only gonna get just over 2,000 back. But i have one child. Shouldn't i get a 3,000 dollar tax credit back from him?

  • It's up to $3000. It is based on income. I always thought you got it no matter what, but if you haven't made $1K or more, then you don't get it. So, the credit is based on your income for the year, and it's up to $3K.
