What is the Extended Child Tax Credit Program?
The Child Tax Credit was originally expanded as part of the $1.9 trillion US bailout bill created by the president Joe Biden.
The previous amount of money parents could have was $2,000, so a significant increase was made to try to help address the rising cost of living for average families.
In order to encourage more parents to apply for a tax credit and make it easier, the online and mobile tool was created by Code for America in partnership with the White House and the US Treasury. Works in English and Spanish.
The tool provides families with a quick and easy way to claim the Child Tax Credit, which can be done in 15 minutes online. The tool can also be used to make any missing stimulus payments.
Does the child tax credit reduce other benefits?
The critical factor in why people must file before the November 15 deadline is that claiming this child tax credit does not affect eligibility for other federal benefits such as SNAP or WIC.
So, this is a worthwhile feature that will help families across the USA, but the easy online tool to claim it will only be available for a few more hours.
