Trouble filling out form 8379

I am having trouble filling out part 3 on form 8379....my husband is the injured spouse and I have no income. On line 13 I put his total income amount and I put nothing in line 13b because we only had his wages. Where do I find how much to put on the rest of the lines? I have the instructions for filling out the form but I can?t figure how much to put in box 17? The instructions are vague and just says to refer to section 2 of form 1040A but do I put the total from line 30 or line 46? We have just the standard deduction and 5 children. His total federal tax withheld was 4,609...I?m just lost! Can anyone help!?!

Line 17 is for tax credits related to the children that you allocated on line 16. If there are none, that's "0" for both of you. If you're eligible for child care credits, the person who you decided would take that exemption (in Question 16) takes the credits for that child or children. If one or both of you qualify to take the American Opportunity Credit for education expenses paid in 2009, each of you would enter your own credit on that line 17, as well.
