Press Release

The American Rescue Plan expanded the Child Tax Credit for 2021 to get more help to more families. The credit increased from $2,000 per child in 2020 to $3,600 for each child under age 6. For each child ages 6 to 16, it’s increased from $2,000 to $3,000. It also makes 17-year-olds eligible for the $3,000 credit.

To get money to families sooner, the IRS is sending out half of the 2021 Child Tax Credit this year in monthly payments. Eligible families received a payment of up to $300 per month for each child under age 6 and up to $250 per month for each child age 6 to 17.

If you haven’t yet signed up for this year’s payments, it’s not too late—the deadline is November 15. You can find out more at ChildTaxCredit.gov.
