Most families with children will automatically get the Child Tax Credit – up to $3,600 per child. Advance payments start going out via direct deposit in July, and will go out monthly until the end of the year. Half of the credit will be paid out when you file your 2021 income tax return.
If you think you’re eligible but didn’t file tax returns in 2019 or 2020, sign up here: https://www.irs.gov/credits-deductions/child-tax-credit-non-filer-sign-up-tool.
