Some of the payments that were expected to hit people’s bank accounts on Friday will actually be mailed.
That was the notice some received when they checked the status of their Child Tax Credit advance payments, which were issued on Friday.
Those payments for the month of August ranged from $250 to $300 per qualifying child int act household.
Some said that the IRS tool that tracks individual payments noted that they would receive them by U.S. Mail. That came as a surprise to many of those individuals- who said last month’s payments- the first in the series of advances on the tax credit- were received through direct deposit.
The U.S. Treasury responded issuing a statement after the confusion was noted on social media.
“Due to a technical issue expected to be resolved by the September payments, a small percentage of recipients — less than 15% — who received payments by direct deposit in July will be mailed paper checks for the August payment,” they said.
