Just spitballing here but…

If the law says under 17 and it is a 2020 tax credit, I would guess that your nephew would be ineligible as he turned 17 during 2020.

That said, if your brother recently received $500 for his son as part of the tax credit advance, there doesn’t appear to be an appetite in the IRS for a clawback of the advance.
