The IRS has asked us to share information to help families access the 2021 Advance Child Tax Credit payments, which could be to up to $1,800 per qualifying child. These payments are made automatically to taxpayers who qualified on their 2020 tax returns.
This is also available to low income families who may not have been required to file tax returns. They have developed a tool that can not only help families get the advance payments, but also help them get missed Economic Impact Payments (EIP). This could amount to over $14,000 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children who may be struggling to make ends meet. Please review the resources in English and Spanish to see if you might qualify.
