Where child tax credit?

The child tax credit provides money to support American families by helping them make ends meet, pay more easily for the costs of raising children, or saving for their children's future. Like the federal child tax credit, state child tax credits are a strategy for improving family economic stability and are often supported by bipartisan parties. ARPA temporarily made the tax credit fully refundable and paid half of the total credit in monthly payments for the first six months, instead of once a year.

The Get It Back campaign helps eligible people apply for tax credits and use free tax filing assistance to maximize time. The amount of the tax credit increased again and became refundable in 2001 to coordinate with the earned income tax credit. If you decide not to receive any more monthly payments, you will receive the remaining child tax credit as a lump sum next year when you file your tax return. If you received early child tax credit payments, you should reconcile (compare) the total you received with the amount you can claim.

If you haven't yet filed your tax return, you still have time to file it and get your full child tax credit. The COVID-19 pandemic created or aggravated economic burdens for many families, and recent legislative trends suggest that states are increasingly considering child tax credits. For official guidance, see IRS Publication 972, Child Tax Credit and Credit for Other Dependents. Even if you don't owe taxes or have no recent income, you can still receive the full amount of this tax credit.

For the most distressed families, the child tax credit reduced food shortages among low-income families by 25 percent and had a dramatic impact on reducing child poverty.
