Child Tax Credit
Because the Child Tax credit is nonrefundable, it can only reduce the taxpayer's liability to zero. It should not be confused with dependency exemptions, which may be awarded for dependents that do not qualify for this credit. However, it can also be supplemented by the Additional Child Tax credit.
