    There isn’t one. You are not taxed on the number of children that you have.

    Do you mean the child tax deduction? the child care credit? Not sure what you are looking for but you can go to http://www.irs.gov and search under the key words to find out.
    Good luck.

    The total EIC for 1 child maxes out $ 3000 and 2 children maxes out around $ 5100.

    To qualify for the $ 3000 you will need to make between $ 8000-$ 16000 and to qualify for the $ 5100 you will need to make between $ 13000-$ 16000

    This information comes for IRS pub 596. Also, review the EIC Explained link below for a full explanation of how EIC works with illustrations.

    How is the EIC calculated? Is there a ratio & how does it work…what is the formula? I need advise on on what is the best way for me to file is to maximize my refund. I am had of house, I have a 5 yr.old child & a 42 yr.old boyfriend/sons father/domestic partner, but not married…I support him & my son
    100%,100% of the time due to the fact that he is disabled but is still fighting for his benefits & is unable to work at all during this process, do we are told by his attorney. I have to pay all his medical & have been saving gas receipts throughout the year sooo that if is happens to be beneficial for me to itemize, I would have them to claim? Also…is it still a minimum of $4,000.00 in deductions to file that way & how do I know what my deductions &/or credits will be??….will I be eligible for the additional credits & if so, what will they be?

    Its all so confusing & let’s face it, we all want to educate ourselves on how we can improve or refunds…I have been researching these questions on the IRS website but there are, in many cases, stipulations where I am not quite sure of any it..for example, since we are not legally married, although it seems so because we have been together for 11 yrs. & I just learned that I should have been claiming him for the past 3 years because I am completely supporting him but didn’t think that I could due to the fact that we at not married…can I still claim him for 2012 also because I have yet to file for that year as well?…& he still owes,I think, just under$1000.00 for back child support on a now legally adult child…w know that he still has to pay no matter what,& we want to, but due to the step medical expenses & him not being able to work at all, we just have not been able to do so….what I need to know is this…if I claim him as a dependent (relative), will they garnish my tax refund because of what he owes? If anyone can offer any expert advise to sooo all the guess work for me,I would appreciate it greatly!!! Oh yeah, we experienced a house fire in 2013 (which is why I have not yet filled for 2012) …is there a credit for that too or just for homeowners (we rent a condo)? So many questions that I can’t sleep at night pondering the unknown…I am on a tight budget and in Dyer need of some sound/free advise because I need to have an idea of what’s going on & actually have some dirt of insight on the subject matter because the quick/generic tax preparers don’t always know all therefore I feel the need to be completely armed with information prior to seeing anyone for the actual filling…need to strategize…anyone, please help me to she’d some light on the facts & the tax laws, please & thank you!!!
