Expecting mothers should be able to claim the child tax credit because the work, care, and costs associated with motherhood start well before childbirth. Letting them claim the child tax credit in the year of their pregnancy as well as after the child is born will help new families financially.
The child tax credit should only be available to parents after a child is born. Letting expecting mothers claim an extra year of the credit once their child is born would take too much tax revenue away from the government.
