Did You Miss Out On Any Child Tax Credit Payments? Here’s What You Need to Know

In the days leading up to Christmas, the Internal Revenue Service and the Treasury Department will dispense the sixth batch of tax payments to families.

Precisely, on December 15th, the sixth and final payment for the child tax credit program for 2021 will be distributed.

Each child up to the age of six will automatically receive $300, and each child aged six to 17 will receive $250.

A parent may claim as much as $3,600 each on their taxes in 2021 too.

In order to claim the full child tax credit in 2021, families who received child tax credits will have to compare the payments to the total.

It is possible to get a lump sum payment if you received less than you were entitled to.

It is also possible that you will have to pay some back if you were overpaid.

Letter 6419 with your tax refund amount will be mailed to you by the IRS in January. Do Make sure to keep it as a record.

On Third Stimulus Check

Earlier this year, through a third stimulus check, a wider range of people were eligible to receive money (for example, noncitizens who pay taxes) plus qualified singles and their families.

It is important to know that you can still claim the Economic Income Payment on your tax return even if you didn’t receive the third stimulus check.

Just remember, you only have until December 31, 2021, to contribute.

You will receive letter 6475 with the amount you received from the IRS.

Note: No matter what your deduction method is, you can still be eligible to deduct up to $300, by filing as an individual and up to $600 if filing as a married couple.
