Claim Advance Child Tax Credit payments by November 15, 2021
The New York City Department of Consumer and Worker Protection has shared the following information with OANA on the Child Tax Credit payments.
As you know, the Child Tax Credit serves as a crucial benefit for millions of families in New York City and across the country. In NYC, over 400,000 children whose families are not currently tax filers could benefit from the Child Tax Credit —worth up to $3,600 per child. Between stimulus payments and the Child Tax Credit, child poverty in NYC could be cut in half.
If your constituents did not receive advance payments and they were not required to file, they must sign up by November 15, 2021 to receive payment in 2021.
