The federal government funds for the Child Tax Credit are being deposited to over 35 million families’ accounts starting July, 15th, 2021. The ongoing monthly deposits will take place until December 2021.
Most families with children under 17 years old are eligible and you do not need to apply to receive the funds if you filed taxes in 2019 or in 2020. If you applied for the U.S. stimulus check you are also automatically eligible to receive the Child Tax Credit payments. Please be sure to check with your banking institutions to see the status of your deposit.
