What is the Credit for Other Dependents?

The Credit for Other Dependents is new for tax year 2018.  This $500 nonrefundable credit is available for dependents for whom taxpayers cannot claim the newly expanded Child Tax Credit. These dependents may include dependent children who are age 17 or older at the end of 2018, or parents or other qualifying relatives supported by the taxpayer. Families with qualifying children under the age of 17 should first review their eligibility for the expanded Child Tax Credit, which is usually a larger amount.
