Where child tax credit payments?

Get the total of your advance payments and the number of eligible children in your online account and in the 6419 letter we sent you in the mail. You can use your Child Tax Credit Update Portal username and password to log in to your online account. To check your eligibility, see the “Eligibility” section on the main page of the child tax credit update portal. For official guidance, see IRS Publication 972, Child Tax Credit and Credit for Other Dependents.

If you want to check if you qualify for early payments, get information about your monthly payment amounts, or choose not to receive early payments, use the IRS Child Tax Credit Update Portal (CTC UP) to manage your advance payments. 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. 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. About half of middle-income parents report having spent their child tax credit payments on their mortgage, rent, utilities, or car payments.

Even if you don't owe taxes or have no recent income, you can still receive the full amount of this tax credit. For 30 years, these partnerships have connected low- and moderate-income people with tax benefits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and Voluntary Tax Assistance (VITA). If you received early child tax credit payments, you should reconcile (compare) the total you received with the amount you can claim. The Get It Back campaign helps eligible people apply for tax credits and use free tax filing assistance to maximize time.

The child tax credit update portal is no longer available, but you can view your total prepayments in your online account. If you haven't yet filed your tax return, you still have time to file it and get your full child tax credit. This website provides information to help the public understand the child tax credit and anticipate child tax credit payments.
