Rhode Island Announces $250 Child Tax Credit - Who Benefits?

Some relief may be on the way for Rhode Island families in the weeks leading up to

The start of school, just as families face the financial pinch of buying school supplies and clothes.

In a press release issued Tuesday, Aug. 2, the governor's office announced details of

Rhode Island residents who make up to $100,000 for a single taxpayer or $200,000 for 

A couple filing jointly will be eligible for the tax rebate. According to the release, 

Nearly 115,000 families will benefit. For up to three children under the age of 18, 

families will receive a one-time benefit of $250 per child. Taxpayers who claim at least one dependent 

Child under the age of 18 on their federal and state income tax returns for 2021 will receive

Rebate checks automatically beginning in October. On the Division of Taxation's 2022 Child Tax

Rebates page, taxpayers will be able to track the status of their payment in the coming weeks.

Acting Health and Human Services Secretary Ana Novais said 

that family members will breathe a little easier at a time when national inflation is high 

And everything seems to be costing more.
