Don't let your friends, family members or clients miss out on money to which they are entitled.
$3,000 to $3,600 per child per year for nearly all working families!
"The Child Tax Credit in the American Rescue Plan provides the largest Child Tax Credit ever and historic relief to the most working families ever - and as of July 15th, most families are automatically receiving monthly payments of $250 or $300 per child without having to take any action," according to the White House website.
These payments are automatic for federal tax filers. But what if you don't file taxes? The Biden Administration has launched an easy-to-use tool enabling non-filers to sign up for the Child Tax Credit. It's mobile-friendly, full of resources and available in English and Spanish with more languages on the way.
The new sign-up portal, GetCTC (or in Spanish), will lower the barriers for non-filer families to access the Child Tax Credit and help lift more American families out of poverty.
