Child Tax Credit

November 15th is the last day to apply for CTC

What is the Child Tax Credit?

The Child Tax Credit (CTC) is an existing tax credit for families within a certain income range. Those who filed taxes in 2019 or 2020 were automatically enrolled and began receiving automatic advance payments in July 2021; however, non-filers may still be missing out on this credit that could provide up to $3600 per child of federal support.

The deadline for enrolling to receive these benefits is November 15, 2021.
