What is the Child Tax Credit?

  • The Child Tax Credit (CTC) provides families with $3,600 per child under age 6, and $3,000 per child under 18
  • You can still claim the full credit by filing a tax return in 2022
  • The CTC is fully refundable (you get a payment if you owe less taxes than the credit amount)

You’re Eligible If:

  • You earned under $75,000 as a single filer, $112,500 as a single head of household, or $150,000 as joint filers
  • You have at least one qualifying child

How to Claim:

  • File a tax return
  • Free tax preparation is available starting in early 2022, from MyFreeTaxes.com and VITA
