Advance Child Tax Credit (CTC) Payments
UPDATE: Advance Child Tax Credit (CTC) Payments
You may be eligible for cash help for your family! Please see nyc.gov/accessnyc to learn more, and read more details here. Your family can get up to $3,600 per child through the new Child Tax Credit (CTC), with half as advance monthly payments in 2021 and half as part of your tax refund in 2022. If you haven’t received payments in 2021, you must take action by November 15. You can claim the CTC even if you have no income or don’t normally file taxes. The CTC will not affect other benefits. Parents do not need a Social Security number, but children aged 17 or younger must have one to qualify.
Two ways to claim the CTC:
1. Visit on.nyc.gov/ChildTaxCredit to schedule help claiming the credit.
2. Use the e-filing tool at GetCTC.org/nyc to sign up to receive payments.
To use this tool, you must earn less than $12,400 (single parent) or $24,800 (married couples filing jointly). Do not use this tool if you filed taxes in 2019 or 2020 or used the IRS Non-Filer Tool to claim stimulus payments.
