If you take the standard tax deduction, can you still claim the Child Tax Credit? I can't find the answer with Google.
The Child Tax Credit is a credit, not a deduction, so you do not need to itemize to get the credit.
Qualification is based on your adjusted gross income, which is calculated before the standard deduction and most itemized deductions.
The tax credit, $2000 per child, is 'refundable' up to $1400 per child. This simply means that if you look at your tax bill, pre-credit, and the tax is less than ($2000 * # of children) that you can actually get a refund of up to $1400 per child and end the year with a 'profit'.
