Starting July 15, the IRS will start making advance payments of the Child Tax Credit to qualifying families, thanks to a significant expansion of that tax credit in the American Rescue Plan Act.
Millions of Texas children and families can benefit from these monthly payments. For example, an eligible family with a 3-year-old, a 6-year-old and a 17-year-old will receive an extra $800 each month, from July through December, and another lump sum next tax season.
Learn who is eligible, how it works and how to help Texas families get the full benefit of this expanded credit. Our speaker will be Roxy Caines, EITC Campaign Director at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
