July IRS Events Promote Advance Child Tax Credit Payments

The IRS hosted events in 12 cities on Friday, July 9 and Saturday, July 10, to help individuals register for the Advance Child Tax Credit (ACTC) payments.

These events were held in 12 cities. Most meetings take place at IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers. Most of the IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers hosted the events on Saturday from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm local time.

IRS Wage and Investment Commissioner Ken Corbin stated, "This is part of a wider effort by the IRS to reach as many people as possible who do not file a tax return but may be eligible for the Child Tax Credit and Economic Impact Payments. We encourage people to share this information widely and encourage those who need help to visit these locations."

Volunteers and IRS employees were on hand to assist individuals with the Non-Filer Sign-up Tool on IRS.gov. The tool may also help some individuals register for the $1,400 third round of Economic Impact Payments. Some individuals may also want to determine if they qualify to receive payments by using the Advance Child Tax Credit Eligibility Assistant.

Individuals who wish to use the tool online should be prepared. The tool will require Social Security numbers for children, the personal Social Security numbers or Tax Identification Numbers for the caregiver, a mailing address, an email address and direct deposit account information.

The Child Tax Credit (CTC) is refundable. Even if an individual owes no tax, the IRS will issue the credit as a refund. An individual must file a 2020 tax return or use the Non–Filer Sign-up Tool on IRS.gov.

The Advance Child Tax Credit payments start on July 15. Individuals may receive a payment of $300 each month for children under age 6 and $250 per month for children ages 6 to 17. The payments will be phased out for individuals with larger incomes.

The IRS encourages individuals to request the payments by direct deposit. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation website has details on how to open a bank account online. The ACTC was authorized by the American Rescue Plan in March of 2021. Most eligible individuals will receive direct deposits to their bank accounts in the middle of each month for the last half of this year. The balance of the Child Tax Credit amounts will be distributed when the 2021 tax return is filed.

Power of Attorney

If you want to be sure that a person you trust will be able to make decisions for you when you are unable to do so, you can create a power of attorney agreement for healthcare or finances. A power of attorney for healthcare allows a person (known as your agent) to make decisions about the medical care you will or will not receive. A power of attorney for finances allows your agent to manage your financial affairs. Your agent must make decisions consistent with what they know your wishes are, even if they personally disagree. If they do not know your wishes on a particular matter, they must act in your best interest. You can give your agent broad authority to make decisions related to your financial or health care needs, or you can limit their authority to certain types of decisions. Depending on your needs, we can help you create a power of attorney agreement that will be active immediately, will go into effect if you become incapacitated, or will only be in effect for a limited time or under specific circumstances.
