Families With Children Qualify for Monthly Payments

child tax credit family

SimplifyCT is helping families register for the Child Tax Credit program for free!

Working together with nonprofits, we help parents sign up for the program, at no cost, allowing them to receive up to $3600 per child!

How does it work?

  • The IRS pays families with children each month starting in July 2021.
  • You can receive up to $3,600 per child depending on their age.
  • You get the Child Tax Credit when you file 2021 taxes, or file a specific Child Tax Credit form with the IRS.

Are you eligible?

  • ANY family with children can benefit, as long as the child has a social security number.
  • Employment & income are NOT required.
  • The child must have been under 18 on December 31, 2021.
  • The child must live with you most of the time.

What do I need to do?

  • You do not need to take action, as long as you have filed a 2020 or 2021 tax return. If you filed your taxes, you will receive the Child Tax Credit automatically.
  • If you have not registered, don’t worry, just fill out the form on this page and we’ll help you complete the registration.
  • If you haven’t received your stimulus checks, we can help you with those, too.

“I was very happy at how easy and stress-free the whole process of preparing your taxes was. Due to the pandemic, we filed our taxes through the website. The process is user-friendly. They are always there for you by phone/email from beginning to end until your taxes are completed and submitted to the IRS. This is an excellent free tax service for the community and I highly recommend it.” — Tania Z.
