Child Tax Credit

The Deadline For Renewal Of The Child Tax Credit Passes, No Payments Next Year

The federal government introduced child tax credit payments to help low-income families bear their children’s expenses. The child tax credit was due to expire at the end of December this year.  Npr reports over 35 million child tax credit beneficiaries across the US. Biden introduced the Build Back Better bill, which aimed to renew the child tax credit for 2022.

However, the bill failed to garner support which shattered the hopes of the citizens. The conclusion of the monetary benefits will badly affect the families as they will now have to cover the additional expenses of the child’s education.

The Remaining Half Of Current Payments Is Due By April 2022

The government announced $250-$300 per child for eligible families under the child tax credit payments. The beneficiaries have received the first half of the payments in six monthly installments. The remaining payments are due in April 2022, when the citizens file their tax returns for 2021. The government announced $3,000-$3,600 to the eligible families under the child tax credit program.

Data from the reports suggest that the introduction of the child tax credit boosted the financial and educational scenario across the US. The children from low-income backgrounds were able to receive food and education. The continuation of the child tax credit payments would have decreased child poverty and hunger significantly. Low-income families are likely to suffer a lot after the payments arrive at an end.

The Child Tax Credit Helped Poor Families

Npr reports that malnourished children need additional monetary benefits to lead an everyday life, and the cessation of the child tax credit benefits doesn’t help their cause. The monthly payments enabled the families to save for the future and provide a decent life for the children. The Census Bureau reports that over 21 million individuals in the US were deprived of food in early December. Npr quoted a pediatrician Dr. Megan Sandel, who said, “I have to call out that with the Build Back Better bill not being passed, that we see now families losing hope. So time is of the essence. We need to make sure that families don’t fall off the cliff, especially in this time with such high food inflation.”
