2021 Advance Child Tax Credit

There have been important changes to the Child Tax Credit that will help many families receive advance payments July through December 2021. 
 
What are Advance Child Tax Credit payments?
Advance Child Tax Credit payments are early payments from the IRS of 50 percent of the
estimated amount of the Child Tax Credit that you may properly claim on your 2021 tax
return during the 2022 tax filing season. These monthly payments will be made July
through December 2021.
 
The IRS has created a special Advance Child Tax Credit 2021 page at IRS.gov/childtaxcredit2021.
