2021 Advance Child Tax Credit Payments
According to the IRS, half of the total Child Tax Credit amount will be paid as early as July 15, 2021. Individuals and families will receive their payment in monthly installments through December 2021. Many families and individuals will receive this payment as a direct deposit into their account. The other half can be claimed when individuals file their 2021 income tax return.
