Child Tax Credit Payments: What You Need to Know

The Child Tax Credit Payments are part of the American Rescue Plan, a package of measures geared toward providing financial relief to American families affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

These are monthly payments of $250 or $300 for per qualifying child since July 15 through December 2021.

The dates of the payments are July 15, August 13, September 15, October 15, November 15 and December 15.

Working families will receive these payments if they make up to $150,00 for a couple or $112,500 for families with a single family.

Some Useful Tools

The IRS has created some useful tools to help people get more information about the Child Tax Credit Payments.

For example, if you are not sure whether you qualify for the payments, you can use this online assistant to determine if your family qualifies. All you have to do is to answer the questions that the assistant will show you automatically.  

On the other hand, if you need to update your deposit information, or unenroll to stop getting the payments, then use the  Child Tax Credit Update Portal.

Taxpayers who qualify for the payments but weren’t required to file a 2020 tax return should use the Child Tax Credit Non-Filer Sign-up Tool to report their qualifying children born before 2021.

If you have questions even after using these tools, don’t hesitate to contact our experts. We’ll be happy to answer your questions about this and any other topic related to taxes.
