Starting July 15th, families will receive $250-$300 per child each month through December 2021. These advanced payments will be half of the Child Tax Credit, and you can claim the remainder on your 2021 tax return.

If you filed taxes in 2019 or 2020, or if you received stimulus checks, these payments will happen automatically.

You can learn more at 
or on the IRS website
