What you need to know about the 2021 Child Tax Credit

If you claimed a dependent child in 2020, you can probably not only expect a higher child tax credit for 2021, but you may also start getting advanced monthly payments beginning in July of this year. Here’s what you should know:

Even if your income does not qualify you for the increased credit, you may still qualify for the original $2,000 child tax credit. If you are concerned about having to pay back the child tax credit due to a change in income, you can elect to receive your full credit on your return and opt-out of the advanced payments by using the IRS online portal scheduled to be launched in July 2021.
