Please see the information below from the IRS that we have been asked to share with our families.
The attachment explains the Advance Child Tax Credit Payments in 2021, which could provide families, financial assistance of up to $1,800 per qualifying child. These payments are made automatically to taxpayers who qualified on their 2019 or 2020 tax returns.
The current IRS outreach efforts are focused on low income families who may not be receiving these payments because they don’t have a tax filing requirement. To resolve this, we have developed the Non-filer Sign-up Tool that can help these families get the Advanced Child Tax Credit payments and help them get the third round of Economic Impact Payments (EIP). These payments could prove to be a great relief to families struggling to make ends meet. Please note the Non-filer Sign-up Toolwill no longer be accessible after October 15, 2021.
