Child Tax Credit Program - Starts July 15, 2021 The Child Tax Credit, part of the American Rescue Plan, is coming, and it will help families raising children make ends meet. This credit will give working families $300 a month for each child under the age of 6 and $250 a month for each child from age 6-17. Monthly payments begin on Thursday, July 15, 2021! If you have already filed your 2019 or 2020 taxes, payments will begin automatically. If you have not filed taxes in the past two years but qualify for the payments, just fill out a simple form for non-filers by clicking here. Families can check their eligibility through this IRS website. The expanded credit, however, is only in place for 2021. Please note that the schools are not managing this program. Use these links for more information. Here are things you need to know about the expanded child tax credit - Who qualifies? The full enhanced credit will be available for heads of households earning $112,500 and joint filers making up to $150,000 a year, after which it begins to phase out. For many families, the credit then plateaus at $2,000 per child and starts to phase out for single parents earning more than $200,000 or for married couples with incomes above $400,000. Parents who aren't citizens can receive the payments for their citizen children as long as they have individual taxpayer identification numbers (ITIN) and their children have Social Security numbers. Families can check their eligibility through this IRS website. The expanded credit, however, is only in place for 2021. How much will I get? That depends on your household income and family size. Eligible families can receive a total of up to $3,600 for each child under 6 and up to $3,000 for each one age 6 to 17 for 2021. That's an increase from the regular child tax credit of up to $2,000 for each child up to age 17. When will I see the money? Parents will receive half their credit -- up to $300 a month for each child under age 6 and up to $250 for each one ages 6 to 17 -- on a monthly basis from now through the rest of the year. The payments will be made on the 15th of each month, unless it falls on a weekend or holiday. They can claim the other half when they file their 2021 taxes next year. Parents can check if they are enrolled to receive the advance payments at an IRS portal. They can also use it to provide or update their bank account information, which will take effect starting with the August payment. In early August, the IRS is scheduled to allow parents to update their mailing address, and later in the summer, the agency will let families update their income and marital status, as well as the number of dependents, which is important for anyone with babies born in 2021. If you are in need of help with budgeting, make an appointment by calling Southeast Community Services at 317-236-7400 www.southeastindy.org or the Fountain Square Salvation Army at 317-632-0156 x 103 www.safountainsquare.org
