What Are The MAGI Phase-Outs In Claiming The Child Tax Credit?

Only those families that make less than $110,000 annually are eligible for the full credit. Families making between $110,00 and $130,000 receive a reduced credit (specifically $50 per $1,000 made over $110,000). Individuals who are unmarried must have earned under $75,000 to qualify for this credit. Taxpayers who are married but filing separate returns must have made no more than $55,000.
