How do I claim Child Tax Credit for a baby born in 2022?

You can not claim a baby born in 2022 yet; you'll have to wait until 2023. Every year we file taxes for life events that occurred the year before. Now that it is 2022 we file a tax return for 2021 and can only include income, children, marriages, etc. that occurred in 2021.

When you file taxes next year, you can claim children who were born in 2022.
