The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) already began this Friday with a new weekend of orientation on advance payments under the “Child Tax Credit” of the Biden Administration with events in several cities in the United States.
The activities today and tomorrow are carried out the IRS in coordination with partner and community groups.
The intention of these days is to motivate more people to sign up to receive the six deliveries in advance, between July and December.
At these additional events, the counseling team will promote the tool known as “Non-Filer Sign-up”, designed so that low-income families who are not required to file taxes submit their data and those of their minor dependents to the IRS to process payments under the CTC, or “Child Tax Credit”.
“This tool, an update to last year’s IRS Non-Filer Tool, is also designed to help people sign up for round three of Impact Payments of $ 1,400 (also known as stimulus checks) and claim the Refund Recovery Credit for any amount from the first two rounds of Economic Impact Payments that you did not receive. People do not need to have children to attend these events and sign up to receive Economic Impact Payments, “the IRS said in a press release on Friday.
This weekend’s events will take place in Birmingham, Alabama; The Bronx, New York; Charlotte, North Carolina; Chicago, Illinois; Cleveland Ohio; Dallas, Texas; Indianápolis, Indiana; Memphis, Tennessee; Minneapolis / St. Paul, Minnesota; Newark, Nueva Jersey; New Haven, Connecticut; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Paterson, Nueva Jersey; Riverside, California; Seattle, Washington; y Tampa, Florida.
Various online tools to expand credit reach
In-person events are in addition to other online tools to guide the scope of credit that this year it grants a maximum of $ 3,600 per child under the “American Rescue Plan”.
The IRS has set up a special portal for people to verify their eligibility for payments. The free service IRS.gov/creditoporhijos2021 will also calculate the monthly estimated amount under the extended credit.
Also, the office launched an information update portal from IRS.gov to cancel monthly paymentsInstead, the beneficiary requests a one-time, lump-sum refund in the next tax season.
Another alternative people have to verify their eligibility for advance payments is through the new Child Tax Credit Eligibility Wizard.
The total amount of the monthly payment per household will depend on the number of children in the family, their ages as well as the income level of the custodial parent (s).
The first monthly payments for the expanded CTC were sent on July 15 and will continue to be sent monthly until December 15. Eligible families who do not cancel their enrollment in monthly installments will receive a payment of up to $ 300 per month for each child under age 6 and up to $ 250 per month for each child ages 6 to 17.
