How This New Income Tax Rule Could Affect You
In 2021, the IRS sent out child tax credit payments in advance of the tax season. The payments began in August 2021 and ended in December 2021.
If you received any advance child tax credit payments in 2021, be sure to have this information available to your tax preparer to report on your 2021 tax return.
The IRS sent notices with amounts to help with this. But if you didn't receive a notice, you can still inform your tax preparer of the amount you received so it can be included on your tax return. The IRS has warned that failure to report the correct amount on your tax return will result in your refund being delayed.
If you don't remember the amount you received, you can create an ID.me account with the IRS that will allow you to view this information, as well as all of
your tax records: https://api.id.me/en/registration/new.
Before getting too excited, it’s worth keeping in mind that tax refunds will be reduced by any money you receive now. Also, if the IRS sends you too much money, you will have to pay it back at tax time. In addition, if you have any changes in your dependents, you will need to access the IRS website and make the amendments.
