Advance Child Tax Credit

The IRS is reaching out to America’s school districts to help them spread the word on the 2021 Advance Child Tax Credit payments, which could be to up to $1,800 per qualifying child.

The Advance Child Tax Credit is not just available to taxpayers with children that file tax returns, but also to people with children who have low or no income. Which could help many children escape poverty in America.

To qualify for Advance Child Tax Credit payments, individuals must:

     • Have a main home in the United States for more than half the year (the 50 states and the District of Columbia) or file a joint return with a spouse who has a main home in the United States for more than half the year; and

     • Have a qualifying child who is under age 18 at the end of 2021 and who has a valid Social Security number; and

     • If have earned income, made less than Modified Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of:

     • $75,000 or less for singles,

     • $112,500 or less for heads of household and

     • $150,000 or less for married couples filing a joint return and qualified widows and widowers
