Make sure you’re enrolled in the next child tax credit, which will be sent in 5 DAYS.

THE NEXT CHILD TAX CREDIT installments will come in the bank accounts of millions of American families in only five days, which means anyone who hasn’t yet enrolled will miss out on the money.

The deadline to use the IRS’s non-filer tool for the child tax credit was October 15.

You can still sign up thanks to an app developed in collaboration with the White House, the US Treasury, and Code for America.

For those who haven’t submitted their tax returns for 2019 or 2020, the GetCTC.org option is available.

If you earned less than $12,200 as a single taxpayer or $24,400 as a married couple filing jointly in the 2020 tax year, you didn’t have to submit a tax return.

You’ll need your Social Security number or an individual taxpayer ID number to use the tool.

However, the deadline to use it is November 15, which is only five days away.

If you file your claim before then, you’ll receive the entire advance child tax credit in one lump sum in December, up to $1,800 per child.

If you don’t, you’ll miss out on the advance credits and will have to file a tax return next year to receive the money.

This is true even if you aren’t obligated to file a tax return on a regular basis.

GetCTC is pushing eligible families to sign up as soon as possible through the non-filers tool.

On November 15, most others who receive monthly payments of up to $300 should expect to receive their fifth installment.

On December 15, the final payment is sent out.

Next year’s tax returns will be able to claim the remaining half.

In 2021, the child tax credits will be worth $3,600 for children under the age of six, $3,000 for children aged six to seventeen, and $500 for college students aged 18 to 24.
