If you have children who live with you most of the year, your family may qualify for a new Federal payment program that started in July 2021. This program is a part of the American Rescue Plan signed by President Biden.

How does it work?

  • The IRS will pay families each month via direct deposit or check.
  • You can receive up to $300 per child per month.

Are you eligible?

  • ANY family with children can benefit, as long as the child has a social security number.
  • Employment & income are NOT required.
  • The child must be under 18 on December 31, 2021.
  • The child must live with you most of the time.

What do you need to do?

  • You do not need to do anything if you have already filed a 2019 or 2020 tax return. You will receive the Child Tax Credit automatically.
  • If you have not registered, just click the link below to get started.
