'Child Tax Credit 2022 Update' - What are the eligibility requirements for direct payments up to $750? Do you qualify?

Families in Connecticut can apply right now for the state's child tax credit and receive up to $250 per child. The payments will be sent out soon.

If household income guidelines are met, households can receive benefits for up to three children for a total of $750.

For single or married filers filing separately, the threshold is $100,000, 

for heads of household it is $160,000, and for married filers filing jointly it is $200,000, respectively.

On May 9, Governor Ned Lamont signed the 2022 Connecticut Child Tax Rebate into law. 

Payments are expected in August. Applications will close on July 31, 2022.

In order to receive the rebate as soon as possible, I strongly urge all eligible Connecticut families to submit an application.

Two groups may have their credit seized by the IRS on their tax returns or be required to repay the agency.

It is very likely that you will have to pay back the IRS if you did not opt out of the monthly payments when you were no longer eligible.

The full payments were available to couples who made less than $150,000,

And to single parents filing as heads of households making less than $112,000.

The Internal Revenue Service determined eligibility based on tax returns filed in 2019 or 2020.
