It’s not too late to file taxes! You may be able to get a refund or a missing stimulus payment, but you must file a tax return to get this money. Filing a tax return is also one way to get your Child Tax Credit now! Click here to see our flyer about the Advance Child Tax Credit.

 

 

 

 

For the 2021 tax year, the Child Tax Credit amounts have increased, and you don’t have to have income to get the money! Also, you don’t have to wait until the end of the tax year to get your money in a refund. The IRS will be sending half of this money out in advance (each month between July and December). People who file taxes will get the advance payments automatically. Others may have to file 2020 taxes or register for the credit. Click here to see our flyer. It has details and says how to get more information.
