(((CBS Detroit) — This week, the third round of child tax credits from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) ends. But parents are asking exactly when the money will arrive. Last month’s check was made on August 13th for those with direct deposits and shortly thereafter for those who depend on the US postal system. This month’s payment will be sent on September 15th. Prepaid will continue from next month to the end of the year, thanks to the American rescue program passed in March.
Families can spend their child tax credits as they please. This means that you can spend an additional $ 250 or $ 300 per child on essentials such as food and rent. If COVID returns students to distance learning, it can also be used for school supplies and new computers. Other households may spend money on piano lessons, day care, and even diapers. Anyway, money comes when a lot of other government assistance-recently additional unemployment insurance-is over. Knowing that additional income will come will enable you to measure security and flexibility in a world of surprises.

How much is a check?
The IRS pays parents of children up to the age of five a total of $ 3,600 per child. This drops to $ 3,000 per child between the ages of 6 and 17. Half of the total will be paid as a 6-month payment and the other half will be paid as a 2021 tax credit. Therefore, from month to December, parents of younger children receive $ 300 and parents of older children receive $ 250. The IRS also paid a $ 500 lump sum payment to 18-year-old dependents or full-time college students up to the age of 24.

The updated child tax credit is based on the parent’s Adjusted Total Income (AGI), as reflected in the 2020 tax return. (AGI is the sum of wages, interest, dividends, dependent allowances, severance pay distributions, and other sources of income minus certain deductions such as student loan interest, dependent allowance payments, and severance pay. )Amount of money Phased abolition Over $ 75,000 for individuals and over $ 150,000 for couples at a rate of $ 50 for every $ 1,000 in annual income. Benefits will be fully refunded. That is, it does not depend on the recipient’s current tax burden. Eligible families receive the full amount regardless of their tax obligations. There is no limit to the number of dependents you can apply for.
For example, suppose a couple has a 3-year-old child and a 7-year-old child, and the 2020 tax shows a joint income of $ 120,000 a year. The IRS sends them $ 550 a month. This is $ 300 ($ 3,600/12) per month for younger children and $ 250 ($ 3,000/12) per month for older children. These payments will continue until December. The couple will then receive $ 3,300 refunds ($ 1,800 ($ 300 x 6) for younger children and $ 1,500 ($ 250 x 6) for older children) as part of tax refund in 2021.
Parents of children older than their age group will be paid less. This means that if a 5-year-old child turns 6 in 2021, parents will receive $ 3,000 in total credit for the year instead of $ 3,600. Similarly, if a 17-year-old child turns 18 in 2021, parents will receive $ 500 instead of $ 3,000.
Increasing income above the $ 75,000 ($ 150,000) threshold in 2021 can reduce household child tax credits. The IRS has confirmed that claimants will be able to adjust their income and storage information online. This will reduce your payments. Otherwise, when a 2021 tax is filed, you may have more tax claims and less tax refunds.
To qualify, dependents must be part of the household for at least half a year and at least half supported by the taxpayer.Taxpayers over $ 95,000 ($ 170,000) if credits are completely phased out Not applicable For extended credit. However, you can claim the existing $ 2,000 credit per child.
How do you change it for future payments?
The IRS has three different tools that help recipients and potential recipients update, register, and qualify information on files.
