U.S. lawmakers from both the Democratic and Republican parties may opt to issue additional payments to make up for delayed January child tax payments.
Biden Planning A Bill To Send Stimulus To More Families
In a recently published article in The U.S. Sun, Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, stated that President Joe Biden is working on a bill that may resume the payments and make up for the money that parents don’t get in January.
She also explained that they’ve discussed having double payments in February as a possibility with Treasury officials and others if they complete the project in January. Following the end of direct 2021 check enhancements, families may get additional “$3,600 stimulus” payouts when they submit their tax returns this year.
Tax returns must be completed in April, but families with children under the age of six may be eligible to receive up to $3,600 in early child tax credit payments. Most families got up to $1,800 per child in 2021 as six advance installments through the Child Tax Credit program. The money comes from the tax credit for children and dependents. In order to assist parents to care for their children, the credit will cover the expenditures of other necessities.
