When is the CTC coming?
The Canadian government has announced that the Child Tax Credit (CTC) will be coming in October. For those of you who don’t know, the CTC is a refundable tax credit that is paid out to families with children under the age of 18. This credit is worth up to $600 per child.
The Child Tax Credit is a refundable credit that helps with the costs of raising a child. The credit is worth up to $2,000 per child, and it starts to phase out when your income reaches $200,000 ($400,000 for married couples filing jointly). The CTC is one of several tax breaks that are set to expire at the end of 2025 unless Congress takes action to extend them.
The CTC is paid out in monthly installments, so families don’t have to wait until tax season to receive the credit. The credit is paid out starting in July, and families should receive their final payment in April. For families who claim the CTC, October 15th is an important date because it’s the deadline for filing your taxes and claiming the credit for the previous year.

The CTC is paid out in monthly installments, starting in October. Families can receive up to $2,000 per child for children aged under 17. The amount you receive depends on your income and how many children you have.
To receive the CTC, you must file a tax return and include your children’s Social Security numbers. You can claim the CTC even if you do not owe any taxes.
How do I know if I’m eligible?
If you have a child who is under the age of 17, you may be eligible for the Child Tax Credit. The credit is worth up to $2,000 per child. To be eligible, you must have a Social Security number for your child, and your child must be a U.S. citizen, national, or resident alien. If you’re not sure if you’re eligible, you can use the IRS’s Eligibility Criteria tool.

Check with your tax preparer
To find out if you qualify for the CTC, you’ll need to check with your tax preparer or the IRS. The IRS will be able to tell you whether or not you qualify and how much you can expect to receive.
What do I need to do to receive the CTC?
The Child Tax Credit is a tax credit for working families with children under age 17. The credit is worth up to $2,000 per child. To receive the credit, you must file a tax return and have a Social Security number for each child.
File your taxes
To receive the CTC, you must file your taxes and include your child’s information. The IRS will then determine if you’re eligible for the credit and, if so, send you a refund for the amount of the credit.
Include your child’s Social Security number
You need to include your child’s Social Security number (SSN) when you file your taxes. You can find your child’s SSN on their Social Security card. If you don’t have your child’s SSN, you can apply for one by going to the Social Security Administration website.
If you’re claiming the CTC for more than one child, you’ll need to include the SSNs for all of them. You should also include your spouse’s SSN if you’re filing a joint return.
How much is the CTC worth?
As part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the child tax credit was increased from $2,000 to $3,000 (or up to $6,000 per qualifying child). The credit is available for children under age 17 at the end of the tax year. The CTC is a fully refundable tax credit, which means that if the credit is more than the taxes you owe, you will receive the difference as a refund.
Up to $2,000 per child
The CTC is worth up to $2,000 per child. To receive the full credit, your household must have an income of less than $200,000. The credit begins to phase out for incomes above $200,000 and is completely phased out for households with incomes of $240,000 or more.
What if I didn’t receive the CTC last year?
Under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the CTC will be paid out in two lump sum payments in 2020. The first payment will be issued in July and the second in October. If you didn’t receive the CTC last year, you may still be eligible for it this year.
You may be eligible for the Recovery Rebate Credit
If you didn’t receive the CTC last year, you may be eligible for the Recovery Rebate Credit. The credit is worth up to $1,200 for single filers and $2,400 for joint filers. You may also receive up to $500 for each qualifying child.
