See how much you’ll get in the next round of child tax credits, which will be given out in THREE DAYS.
AS PART OF THE 2021 CHILD TAX CREDIT, AMERICANS WITH CHILDREN will receive their next stimulus payment on October 15.
President Joe Biden enacted the credit in July, including it in the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan.
A three-step questionnaire on the IRS website gives extra information to determine if citizens are qualified for the tax credit.
The first question asks if the applicant claimed “the child tax credit on their most recent tax return” and if they plan to claim it again in 2021.
The applicant’s principal home for the bulk of 2019 or 2020 is then asked about in a follow-up question. If the applicant lived in “any of the 50 states plus the District of Columbia,” “US military facility,” “US territory,” or “international location,” the inquiry indicates. The child tax credit is not available to applicants who lived in a US territory or a foreign address during that time, although inhabitants of a US military base, the States, or Washington, DC may be eligible.
The first half of the tax credit will be paid in monthly installments until December 15, after which eligible parents will receive the second half in their 2021 tax return.
According to the IRS, families with children under the age of five can expect to get $3,600 in total per child. Parents will receive $3,000 per child between the ages of six and seventeen.
As a result, starting October 15, families will get $300 for each child under the age of five and $250 for each child aged six and over.
The IRS website states that any family qualified for the tax credit must submit their filed tax return for 2019 or 2020, income records such as their W-2 and 1099, and the “amount of any expenses of modifications to your income.”
