Was the Child Tax Credit cut in half?

I have been hearing that it was lowered from $1000 to $500 per child. Is this correct? Please someone inform me. Thank you.

  • No. I only had one child who qualified this year for it and I got $1000

  • I think before Congress extended the Bush Tax Cuts, the child credit would have gone down to $500, but since they passed all the new tax laws back in December, it stayed the same.

  • Not as far as I know we got back the 1000

  • No we got back 1000 per child, and my accountant said nothing about it, but did inform us that an $800 credit for something else would not be there next year!
