What are the benefits of claiming a child on my tax return?

Depending on your situation, you could get up to about $10,000 for every child you can claim on your tax return. When you claim children on your taxes, you might establish eligibility for the Child Tax Credit (CTC), and increase the size of your Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and your Recovery Rebate Credit (RRC — also known as the third stimulus check, from 2021).
