What is Child Tax Credit Threshold
What is the Child Tax Credits Threshold?
The child tax credits threshold amounts are different for different tax filing status. The child
tax credits threshold is used to determine how much child tax credits a taxpayer will receive or whether the child
tax credits will be reduced.
How does the child tax credit threshold work?
If your modified adjusted gross income is more than the child tax credit threshold amount per
your tax filing status below, then you will have to use the IRS publication 972, Child
Tax Credit, to calculate the amount of child tax credit you are entitled to claim from the IRS.

How much of child tax credit is reduced above the modified AGI thresholds?
In general, the child tax credit is reduced from $1,000 per child by 5% of the excess of the
modified adjusted gross income over the amount of the child tax credit threshold for your tax filing status. Other
adjustments will also apply.
