Starting with the 2nd issue, match the number of Eligible for Child Tax Credit children in your 1040 with the number of children on form 8812.

For the 1st issue, the total refundable child tax credit should not exceed the total on form 8812.


You'll get this fault if you forgot to attach a Form 8812.
