Child Tax Credit
Child Tax Credit

The IRS has created a special Advance Child Tax Credit Payments page at IRS.gov/childtaxcredit2021, which is designed to provide the most up-to-date information about the credit and the advance payments, and includes tools designed to help families manage and monitor these payments.

This IRS.gov web site allows families to: verify their eligibility for the payments; enroll to receive monthly payments; opt out from receiving the monthly payments so they can receive a lump-sum when they file their tax return next year; and it includes a Non-filer Sign-up Tool that helps families not normally required to file an income tax return to quickly register for the Child Tax Credit and Economic Impact Payments.
