Can I claim the eligible dependant credit for more than one child?

SOLVEDby TurboTax15Updated July 28, 2021

No. The tax credit for an eligible dependant can only be claimed once. Each household is allowed only one claim for this amount, even if there is more than one dependant in the household.

You should enter all your children and other dependants when preparing your tax return to claim other dependant benefits that may be available.
