Have you filed your taxes yet? Do you have kids 17 years old or younger?

You are eligible for free money regardless of your immigration status!

The White House expanded the monthly Child Tax Credit (CTC) Program earlier this year through the American Rescue Plan. Now, parents can receive up to $3600 for each child under six and $3,000 for children 6-17 years old. The best part? All you need to do is file your taxes to qualify for this payment automatically.

How It Works and Why You Shouldn’t Miss Out:

  • When you file for taxes, there’s no extra effort or application to receive the credit.
    • As long as your tax return is approved and filed correctly, you’ll begin receiving payments. There is no additional paperwork or application process involved. Families with little to no income are eligible.
  • The Child Tax Credit is available to everyone, regardless of immigration status!
    • Parents with Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) who have children with Social Security Numbers (SSNs) can receive The Child Tax Credit.
