Advanced Child Tax Credit 2022 deadlines to know

The Advanced Child Tax Credit 2022 deadline is approaching fast, and families are encouraged to apply

Individuals can apply for the Advanced Child Tax Credit 2022 aid that falls under the American Rescue Plan and is initiated to help people who are raising children until November 15.

With the deadline approaching, Miami-Dade County is making efforts across all departments to inform community members eligible for the benefits while helping families apply for the Advanced Child Tax Credit.

Here's more on this matter.

What is Child Tax Credit 2022?

The Child Tax Credit 2022 is a tax credit for families with children that was revised and expanded last year in March. The American Rescue Plan, which President Biden signed into law, increased the Child Tax Credit for 2021 to assist more families.

The program's benefits for eligible applicants are $3,000 for each child from the ages of 6 to 17 (monthly payment of $250) and $3,600 for each child younger than 6 years old ($300 every month). Qualified families will be given a complete credit of a maximum of $150,000 for two-parent families and $112,500 for single-parent families.

Almost all families with children are eligible, including those with sufficient amounts to file taxes, as well as those who aren’t obliged to file a usual tax return. Some income restrictions apply.

Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava states that this program has led to a decline in childhood poverty in the region. She shares that she wants more families to benefit from it, so all children can reap the benefits.

In addition, she claims that the 2022 Child Tax Credit can support families trying to recover from the pandemic. The team is committed to ensuring that all eligible families are aware of and can apply for this benefit as part of our 'No Wrong Door' scheme.
