I.R.C. § 6429(a) In General
Each taxpayer who was allowed a credit under section 24 on the return for the taxpayer's first taxable year beginning in 2002 shall be treated as having made a payment against the tax imposed by chapter 1 for such taxable year in an amount equal to the child tax credit refund amount (if any) for such taxable year.
I.R.C. § 6429(b) Child Tax Credit Refund Amount
For purposes of this section, the child tax credit refund amount is the amount by which the aggregate credits allowed under part IV of subchapter A of chapter 1 for such first taxable year would have been increased if—
I.R.C. § 6429(b)(1)
the per child amount under section 24(a)(2) for such year were $1,000,
I.R.C. § 6429(b)(2)
only qualifying children (as defined in section 24(c)) of the taxpayer for such year who had not attained age 17 as of December 31, 2003, were taken into account, and
