Mon, Nov 15, 2021 A MESSAGE FROM CONGRESSMAN HOYER Today, Monday, November 15, marks the last day for eligible Maryland households to apply for the 2021 Child Tax Credit. If you apply today, you are still able to receive each missed payment, which is up to $1,800 per child under 6 and $1,500 per child over 6, on December 15, right before the year ends. Any remaining amount not received this year can be claimed when you file your taxes in 2022. For families who are already receiving these monthly payments, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed hearing how the CTC has helped you. If you haven’t yet registered to receive this important benefit that has helped millions of Americans, you can check to see if you are eligible by visiting GetCTC.org today. Congress is working around the clock to pass President Biden’s Build Back Better Act, which would extend the Child Tax Credit for another year so that parents can continue putting food on the table and meet the daily needs of their children, and ensure this credit remains refundable. Earlier this year, I wrote about how this critical assistance will benefit 85% of our children in Maryland – including 132,000 in the Fifth District – lifting thousands out of poverty and improving economic conditions for thousands of low-income families in our state. With the Build Back Better Act, we can promise even greater stability for struggling households and ensure our children are set up for success. As a reminder, the enhanced Child Tax Credit will provide eligible families a total of $3,600 for each child under the age of 6, and $3,000 for each child between the ages 6 and 17. Single parents making up to $75,000 and filing their taxes as individuals, those filing as heads of household making up to $112,500, and married joint filers making up to $150,000 a year are eligible for these monthly automatic installment payments. As payments hit bank accounts today, please do not wait to register in these final hours and claim your Child Tax Credit payment. As always, I encourage all Fifth District residents to continue to share their concerns and insights with me by contacting my office or connecting with me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. If you are experiencing a personal difficulty such as issues accessing veterans benefits or another problem regarding a federal agency and you wish for my office to place an inquiry on your behalf, please complete the casework request form by clicking here. Sincerely Yours, Steny H. Hoyer For more information about our releases, please contact Maya Valentine at 202-226-1290.
