Everyone is elgible for the Child Tax credit as it no longer as anything to
do with income levels if your child is 17 or under.
The Earned Income Credit is based on income.

You should still get the credit if you claim the child on your taxes. My
husband and I did our joint and claimed our son but we did not qualify for
the child tax credit. But we did get the Earned income credit. They are
different but from what I could see its just if you claim the child on your
taxes then you get the credit on the stimulus. Here is a link that also
will show how much and when you will get the tax stimulus the thing with
this is if it gives you an error then they have not processed yours yet. The
first time I did it I got an error then I tried again a week later and it
gave me all the info. https://sa1.www4.irs.gov/irfof/irservlet?app=iractc

think its two seprate things,as it is listed on the brake down on my taxes
as: child tax credit and it is left blank and then on the earned income
credit it says the dollar amount.When i went to see how much id get back
more or less from irs,I put in 0 in the child tax credit space as it is on
my brakedown.I am so confuzed about this. So I don’t know how much I get
guess I’ll wait and see.

You will get it.
Child tax YOU claim on your tax return-the child must be under 23 years of
The Earned Income Credit is an additional credit you can take if your
household income is under a certain amount.
Hope this helps!

On the stimulis checks you can get a 300.00 additonal pay if you have a
child tax credit. I was under the impression the Earned income credit
and the child tax credit was the same thing.Today I found out that its
not…Can some one tell me the diffrence?I filed for the Earned income
credit so I won’t get the additional 300.00.
