Any family that welcomed a new baby during 2021 will see the $1,400 next year when they file their taxes in 2022.
During 2021 parents received $1,400 for each child thanks to the American Rescue Plan Act. Other parents had their baby after the plan went into effect.
Those parents are able to claim the payment they didn’t get this year, next year.
Parents with incomes under $75,000 or joint filing parents with income under $150,000 are eligible.
Parents with twins can even claim two- there is no limit.
This is not part of the Child Tax Credit.
