Child Tax Credit Outreach
You could get up to $3,600 per child under 6 years old and up to $3,00 per child between 6 and 17 years old from the government
The Child Tax Credit is not a loan.
Almost all families qualify for the Child Tax Credit. Even families that don't normally file a tax return or don't have recent income.
Anyone with a child who has a Social Security number can get the Child Tax Credit, even if they don't have a Social Security themselves. Receiving this tax credit won't change any public benefits you receive.
When will I get the money?
You will get the money after you file your 2021 tax return by April 18, 2022.
How do I get the credit?
File a tax return even if you normally don't file taxes and even if you got advance Child Tax Credit payments in 2021. Beware of scams. The IRS will NOT contact you by phone, email, text or social media.
