My children turned 18 in october and they are still in school, can i claim the tax credit?
You should be able to, especially if they're students (and being students in a college might even help lower your taxes further but I assume you're talking high school). It didn't used to be that way but laws have changed. My father put down my sister and I, ages 19 and 21 respectively. I don't recall what the age cap is.
If you find a local accountant (or agency that does accounting) they could give you a lot more information.
The children no longer qualify for the Child Tax Credit at age 18. You can still claim them as your dependents on your return for personal exemptions and filing status as long as long as they are dependents and still full time students, up to the age of 23.
