Child tax credit: How to know if you qualify, how much you’ll get paid | Just the FAQs

 

Biden increased child tax credit payments under his American Rescue Plan. Here's the latest on how much you'll get and when you'll get the payments. RELATED:

WASHINGTON – Millions of Americans with children will see more money in their bank accounts starting in July.

The Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service will begin sending monthly advance payments of $250 or $300 to low- and moderate-income families under the newly expanded Child Tax Credit starting July 15.

The payments will continue on a monthly basis through December, and most eligible families will receive them via direct deposit, senior administration officials said Sunday. Families that don’t have direct deposit will receive the payment either as a paper check or a debit card.

  1. What if you don’t file taxes? I am 100% disabled thru the va from the army…… and I have a 16 year old

    1. @amber crane I called a tax place near me and he said no I don’t file anything, they will use what they did for the stimulus payments….. if anyone else needs to know. But that yes I do have to come in and file for the 1st missing stimulus check

    1. She only then explains families that didn’t make enough to file……. I’m not low income at all. I just never file taxes….

  2. I did taxes in 18 19. I was told not to file this year will I still get the child credit?? I have two children. On 9 years old and the other just turned 15. Will I get any credit for them??

    1. Hi there. How are you doing ? I’m happy to meet you.
      I love talking to people with good plan for future. I’m into property and Estate business.

      I have also made much weekly income by investing in binary option trading platform.
      Would you like to know it??

  3. What about us single people with no kids in the house that get barely crap back after paying in a large chunk of their checks!?

    1. @Ray Christian Wow you people know him so well I even thought I’m the only one he has helped walk through the fear and falls of trade

    2. Yes, I hear you Marsha. My husband and I do not have kids (only ones with paws) And, we have never had any benefit from the government. We just knew we could not afford them.

    3. well since you clearly have kids in ur picture it’s strange that you would attack others that benefit from something had you had kids in the house. Large chunk? you mean the same amount anyone would pay if they made above a certain threshold that you would pay regardless of how it’s spent. For once the government is giving back and distributing money to help people at a time when their expenses are prove to be the highest in their lives.

      And don’t try to argue to not have kids if you can’t afford it? at what point can someone really afford children, when they can no longer have them? when they barely have energy to keep up. Don’t forget the nations birth rate is in constant decline. A country in population decline will only be replaced by immigrants, or become so weak that it collapses.

  4. This is FAR less than they are spending on illegals. This fake administration is so anti-American. Looking forward to that Maricopa audit completion.

  5. What if we got our credit on our 2020 refund? Do we still get this or no? It’s basically just spreading out the child credit throughout the year rather than getting it all at once when u file taxes?

  6. LOL, childless people are getting a break already. If you guys want a tax break you can pay for my kids sports, school supplies, clothes, braces, vacation costs, breakfast, lunch, and dinners. Oh yeah, you can also pay for my kids’ friends’ birthday presents, my kids’ birthday parties, and Christmas presents. Do you want to pay for the pet expenses incurred because my kids had to have a dog, turtle, fish, hamster, another dog? “Yeah, but that’s your choice to have children, neh.” Yep, and it’s your choice to not have children and pay a little more in taxes, but not pay a lot more in raising children to carry our society and civilization into the future.

    1. So you think you DESERVE something..just cause you chose to have children?? Like you are OWED a payout for breeding? ..a prize…a reward for doing your JOB as a parent buying gifts and meals??? How about a parade in your honor??….a statue??….for all the thing you do cause its your JOB.

  7. You will ALWAYS have children living in poverty cause stupid adults keep breeding kids they cannot feed without handouts. If you cannot hold down a job that pays decent you cannot financially support a child..much less two or three or 6 of them. People who force their children to beg and scrap for free meals and toys etc….using poverty to get free stuff…teaching children is normal to beg…..its just a form of child abuse.

    2. Your right especially in the black community it’s outta hand 4 or five babies by different men and women none of the around it’s ridiculous

  8. I have a question hopefully someone has a answer, i made 68k 2020 and filed head of household with two kids under 7 years old and i only received a 1600$ federal refund.. so if i opt in to this advanced child tax credit and get 6000$ for my two kids when I only received a 1600$ refund last year, how does that work?? Will i owe that money back??

    2. It’s a credit. Credits aren’t taxable and can either be used to reduce your taxes or to get a refund. This credit will be given during this year.

    3. @Major Skillz623 , from what I read, it will be paid later this year instead of receiving it when you file taxes in 2022.

  9. I don’t reckon I’ll get anything. I’m a white farmer and I was too white to get anything. In Kentucky our wonder boy governor has ordered all black people residents of Kentucky will get free health care, I was too white to get that too. So I keep paying and paying and paying.
