Families struggling may now have the option to collect child tax credit payments from their state worth up to $1,000 per year.
This could be a relief for millions since the ending of the federal child tax credit advanced payments.
Those failed to be extended in 2022, after lifting millions of children out of poverty in 2021.
Many of these states require you to file a tax return to claim the credit, so even if you’re a non-filer, it may be a good idea to file this year.
