Important Advance Child Tax Credit Payments in 2021


The Child Tax Credit payments were part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, which was signed into law in March of this year.

Advance Child Tax Credit payments are early payments from the IRS of 50 percent of the estimated amount of the Child Tax Credit that you may properly claim on your 2021 tax return during the 2022 tax filing season. If the IRS has processed your 2020 tax return or 2019 tax return, these monthly payments will be made starting in July and through December 2021, based on the information contained in that return.
