What is the tax credit for children?

With the child tax credit, qualifying families are eligible for a tax deduction. Per child, a family is eligible to receive a maximum of $2,000; however, this amount is only partially refundable. Whichever remains after the full amount is deducted from any taxes owed to reduce your tax liability, you might not be eligible to receive the remaining funds.

The refundable portion is known as the additional child tax credit, and it is worth $1,600 this year.

When to anticipate your refund of the child tax credit

According to the IRS, most taxpayers who choose direct deposit and have no other issues with their tax return should expect to receive their additional child tax credit refunds in their bank accounts or loaded onto debit cards by February 27. In certain situations, they may receive their payments a few days ahead of schedule.

The IRS states that they have postponed issuing refunds for the earned income tax credit and the additional child tax credit until mid-February. The agency must use the additional time to prevent fraudulent refunds, as required by law.
