    CHILD tax credits will be a lot smaller for millions of American families for the 2022 tax year. That's because Congress did not extend the higher child tax credit amounts, which means child tax credits (CTC) revert back to $2,000 per child. 1Child tax credit payments for 2022 will revert to the original amount prior to the pandemic How do you apply? To receive 2022 child tax credit payments, families must wait until next year's tax season.

    IF you weren't required to file a federal tax return in 2022 but are eligible for the child tax credit, you can claim your money starting in May. For the past two years, non-filers have been able to take advantage of a simplified filing process that starts after the traditional tax season. 1Families can get the child tax credit without filing a typical tax return This process allows those households to share information with the IRS without filing a full tax return. In turn, the IRS is able to use that information to ensure low-income non-filing households get any tax credits they qualify for. Last year, the White House introduced a simplified filing tool specifically for families to receive the child tax credit, GetCTC. This year, the portal will begin helping non-filers claim the child tax credit in May, but it also had a full filing option that closed when the deadline passed on April 18.

    THE Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has begun sending out two important letters to present when filing your taxes - but some have received ones with incorrect information.

    TODAY marks the last day of the expanded child tax credit that has helped tens of millions of American families – and some are wondering what lies ahead. In July, Americans started receiving monthly installments of the child tax credit payments, which were temporarily boosted to up to $3,600 per child from $2,000 under the American Rescue Act. 1Pending action from Congress, child tax credits could be worth $2,000 or $3,600 in 2022 The last monthly expanded payment was sent out to eligible American families on December 15.

To qualify for the full payments, couples need to make less than $150,000 and single parents who file as heads of households need to make under $112,500. The expanded payments are expected to cut child poverty by more than 40%, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP), a federal and state research firm. However, the progress in reducing child poverty could be wiped away if there is no action...

    THE future of child tax credit payments hangs in the balance as Congress holds the key to more money for Americans. The Build Back Better Act stalled in the Senate. 1The future of child tax credit payments is with Congress The legislation needs the votes to pass, but with Congress on holiday and division among some democrats, any vote looks likely come in 2022.

More than 36million families across the country received the final batch of advance monthly payments totaling about $16billion.  Most payments were made by direct deposit.

    STRUGGLING Americans could receive two stimulus payments worth thousands in February next year. White House officials are reportedly working on plans to help families as it seems likely that the expanded child tax credit program will not be continued next year. 1Americans could receive two stimulus payments next year but it could be difficult to pass legislation in the 50-50 SenateCredit: Getty Democratic Senator Joe Manchin revealed on Fox News Sunday that he couldn’t support Joe Biden’s Build Back Better legislation.

    AMERICANS are being urged to review their stimulus payment options after monthly child tax credits ended. It comes as some states are set to provide a form of universal basic income (UBI) to families, while others are hoping to give their residents a state-wide stimulus check to help cover costs. 1There are other opportunities for people to gain financial supportCredit: Getty Although these may not apply to everyone, here are three stimulus check programs that could replace child tax credits in the New Year. STATE AND CITY STIMULUS CHECKS Some states and cities are offering their own version of a stimulus payment for residents in the absence of a federal one.

    (CNN)Senate Democrats are expected to punt consideration of the cornerstone element of President Joe Biden's agenda into next year after private conversations between Biden and the key Democratic holdout made clear the bill would not have the votes to pass this month.Critical talks between Biden and West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin, the Senate's most important swing vote, over how to pass a $1.75 trillion economic and climate package remain far from any resolution on a series of issues, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the discussions. The impasse, even as talks are expected to continue, marks the clearest sign yet that Democrats will be forced to delay a Senate vote until at least 2022 despite an effort by leadership to approve the bill before Christmas. A source briefed on the conversations tells CNN that talks between Manchin and Biden over the bill, known as Build Back Better, are "very far apart." Given the state of the talks between the influential moderate senator and the President, sources familiar with the matter say Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is very likely...

    EVER since the coronavirus pandemic began, the world has been full of surprises – and you might get another one if you were expecting a tax refund.  When Americans file their taxes each year – they are hoping for a bit of stimulus that they can use to address short-term or long-term needs.  1The average refund in 2021 $2,775 - but some could see lower returns next year In 2021, Americans have received on average $2,775 in tax refunds, an 11% increase from the previous year, according to the Internal Revenue Service.

But this isn’t always the case for some Americans who may owe money because they underpaid in taxes. In particular, there might be some reasons why you may either owe or might not get as big of a refund when you file in 2022 due to policy and other moves made by Washington this year. We explain those possibilities below. You didn’t opt out of child tax credits The American Rescue Act, signed...
