EXPERTS have warned that people have just two weeks until the next child tax credit deadline.

It comes just days after the IRS sent a huge $15 billion to American bank accounts, as part of President Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan.

Families who opted to be paid advance sums totaling $3,600 in 2021 are now starting to see their third monthly instalment.

The CTC payments can reach $300 per month for each child under age 6 and up to $250 per month for each child ages 6 through 17.

However, for those hoping to opt out of advance checks, you will need to act fast as the next deadline is on October 4.

The IRS currently said that if you unenroll and later change your mind, you’ll be still able to opt back during the late stages of September.

If you miss one deadline for the a round of checks, your change will take effect come the next round of payments.

Experts have also warned that families who are mistakenly receiving the advanced child tax payments for a dependent who turns 18 before the end of the year should opt out of future payments.


If they don’t, they may be required to pay back the money once they file taxes.

“The IRS generally adjusts the age of each dependent based on the prior year’s return, either 2020 or 2019, so a taxpayer shouldn’t automatically receive the advance payment for their 18-year-old,” Mark Steber, chief tax information officer at Jackson Hewitt, told ABC10.

“But, if the IRS has made an error and sends payments to ineligible taxpayers, taxpayers should opt-out of collecting the monthly advance payments.

“If ineligible taxpayers don’t opt out and still receive these payments, they may be required to pay back the IRS.”

CNET add that if you decide to unenroll from the monthly payments this year, you still have time to have the remainder of your child tax money show up in the next tax season.

The last payment of the current child tax credit payments is on December 15.

EXPANSION PLANS

Lawmakers are looking for ways to continue the program with Joe Biden’s temporary child tax credit expansion set to end next year.

Recently members of the House Ways and Means Committee released a proposal part of the $3.5 trillion budget that would see credits extended until 2025, Fortune reports.

But, it’s possible that the aid will be scaled back as Senators try to convince moderate Democrats.

Senator Joe Manchin, of West Virginia, said he wouldn’t support the budget in its current form.

He told CNN Sunday: “I support child tax credits and I sure am trying to help children.

“Before you start saying, is it going to be made permanent, this and that, let’s see how we’re doing this.

“Let’s make sure that we’re getting it to the right people.”
