The deadline for missed child tax credit is less than a month away.
There is still time to get up to $3,600 per child.
What do I need to do to get the credit?
Eligible Americans are set to get the full sum payment if they claim the credits on their IRS tax forms by April 18. Find additional details here.
From July to December eligible parents were getting paid up to $300 a month per child. However, some people never received the payments or opted out.
For families who didn’t see payments, they can claim the entire amount on their taxes.
If you believe that you are eligible to receive the credit, you’ll need to fill out Schedule 8812 (Form 1040).
On order to qualify for the child tax credit, couples need to make less than $150,000 or single parents that file head of household under $112,500.
