Child Tax Credit

Hello,

I am currently living overseas and I had a baby in 2014 and did not apply for Social Security. If I would apply now it would be to late to receive a SS# for taxes purpose.

Can you advise whether it is possible I can claim child tax credit for 2014 on next year taxes?

Thank you very much.

Sincerely.

 aslongas you meet the requirements to claim the child as a qualifying child, Only if the child was born AND died in 2014. If your child is born and dies in the same tax year, you don’t have to obtain any type of identification number to claim him as a dependentIn all other cases the child must have an SSN or ITIN, then you can claim child tax credit on the child on your return. The child may have an ITIN;The ITIN was made so that people without SSNs could file legally. April 15 is almost upon you, and you still haven’t applied for the SSN, ITIN or ATIN you need. In that case, you might consider filing a Form 4868 with the IRS no later than the date your return is due. This will give you an extra six months to file your return, and IRS approval is automatic. You can file your return at any time during that six-month period without incurring a late filing penalty. However, the extension applies only to filing, not to paying the taxes you owe. If you don’t include payment for your taxes with your extension request, the IRS will charge you interest on the unpaid amount, and you might even be assessed a penalty
