I was confused about the exact same thing. When I arrived at the page where you claim the FTC and chose the person who would claim the amount (my husband is the higher earner while I earn almost nothing staying at home with our children), our refund amount didn't change. It would seem that Turbo Tax automatically applies the credit earlier in the process, making this page irrelevant.

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