Expanded Child Tax Credit

Posted by U. S. Representative Dwight Evans on July 20, 2021

The expanded Child Tax Credit has started arriving in many Philadelphians’ bank accounts. Some families will receive their payments by check instead. You can learn more at ChildTaxCredit.gov.

For people with children, the American Rescue Plan increased the Child Tax Credit from $2,000 per child to $3,000 per child for children ages 6 to 17, and from $2,000 to $3,600 for children under 6 – and raised the age limit from 16 to 17. All working families will get the full credit if they make up to $150,000 for a couple or $112,500 for a family with a single parent (also called head of household).

If you believe you qualify for the expanded credit but have not received it, please click here to fill out the required federal privacy form that enables the office of U. S. Representative Dwight Evans to look into your case.
