The Republican tax bill, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, lets parents take a $500 credit for dependents who are 17 or older. This also applies to other non-child dependents, such as elderly family members or adult children with disabilities. The credit is non-refundable.

Remember: These changes go into effect beginning with the 2018 tax year.
