Thousands of families could miss out on $750 direct payments if they don't apply TODAY as the deadline for $125 million approaches

There are just hours left to apply for Connecticut child tax credits, and thousands of eligible households could miss out.

Families must apply by midnight on July 31 to receive a $250 tax credit per child, with a maximum credit of $750.

As many as 100,000 eligible families have not yet applied for the CTC.

According to Governor Lamont, all families with at least one dependent child should submit an application as soon as possible.

For more information on the child tax credit, applicants should visit the Department of Revenue Services online portal.

For assistance in applying for the credit, Connecticut residents can also contact United Way.

In order to qualify for the credit, you must meet the following income guidelines:

1. Single or married and filing separately: $100,000 or less

3. Married filing jointly: $200,000 or less

2. Head of household: $160,000 or less

For every $1,000 a household earns over those thresholds, the rebate will be reduced by 10%.

The child tax credit is available to Connecticut parents who claimed at least one child on their 2021 taxes.

Currently, there are no plans to extend the deadline beyond July 31.

It is expected that payments will be made in August, according to Governor Lamont.
