2021 Advance Child Tax Credit (CTC) payments started being issued on July 15. Eligible families can receive up to $300 per month per child under age 6 and up to $250 per month for children age 6 and older.
For 2021 only, families with no earned income or who don’t owe federal income tax may now be eligible for the monthly advance Child Tax Credit payments. However, to receive these tax credit payments, you must have filed a 2019 or 2020 tax return.
The Metro-St. Louis Community Tax Coalition, in partnership with United Way and other community partners and volunteers, is hosting a series of free tax preparation events for individuals who are eligible for CTC, but have not filed a 2020 tax return.
What to bring:
- Current government-issued photo identification card
- Social Security cards for you, your spouse (if applicable), and dependents
- Any other supporting documents (such as Forms W-2 or SSA-1099)
This service is on a walk-in basis and will be the only service provided during the event. Visitors should wear masks if they are not fully vaccinated, and social distancing protocols are in effect.
