You will be able to claim the baby's personal exemption of $3,300 for 2006 plus the $1,000 child tax credit. The exemption amount reduces your income while the tax credit reduces your tax. Make sure, though, that you have gotten a Social Security number for the baby. You may also be able to claim the child care credit if you put the baby in childcare while you were working.
