The $1.9 trillion COVID-19 Relief Plan boosted the Child Tax Credit program for the 2021 tax year.

Child Tax Credit Details
• Credit amount increased – from $2,000 to $3,600 for children under age 6, and $3,000 for children 6-17 years old (previously credit was only given up to age 16).
• Credit amount will be made through advance payments in 2021, starting in July, to allow struggling families the benefit of the financial assistance now, instead of waiting until 2022.
