Family tax credit applied?

If you are doing joint preparation then FTC should be applied automatically to the higher income partner.

Family tax credit applied?

That is what is confusing. The amount is automatically applied earlier in the process. Then, when the user to gets to the FTC page, they are asked to whom they want to apply the credit. If they correctly choose the higher income earner, the return amount doesn't change because the credit has already been applied. It would be helpful if the instructions indicated this.

Agree with your suggestion here completely Nicole; the software is misleading.  It is great that it automatically applies, but the process in the software is different during that portion.  It updates the "tax refund" portion after hitting "done" or "continue" ever other time; not sure why it is different at the FTC page
