As a result, families eligible for child tax credits could receive double payments in February. The final child tax credit payment for 2021 was sent on December 15. Even though Congress did not fulfill the deadline, there is still hope for two payments for families in February.

Is there hope for double stimulus checks in 2022?

White House press secretary Jen Psaki informed that the Biden administration is working overtime on a bill that could reinstate payments. Paski added that if the process is done in January, Treasury officials and others will accomplish double payments in February as an option.

Many American families with their monthly $300 child tax credit payments beginning on July 15 will receive the second half of the credit in a $1,800 total with their 2021 tax return. Finally, eligible American families who have not received payments to date will get a total of $3,600 when filing during the 2022 tax season.

The plans to continue the payments until 2022 were thrown out of gear when Senator Joe Manchin said that he could not support the $2 trillion Build Back Better social spending and climate bill. The Build Back better had envisaged a one-year extension of advance payments. The move would have served as a lifeline for the poor during the coronavirus pandemic.

As President and his team were racing to hammer out a compromise formula, there were other stimulus checks.

Plus-up payments

As reported earlier, US citizens have been urged to claim $1,400 checks before the December 31 deadline set by the IRS. In addition, the plus-up stimulus package is available for those citizens who have seen a drop in their earnings in 2020 compared to 2019.

The American Rescue Plan is for families who had a newborn or adopted a new underage dependent in 2021, and they are eligible for a $1,400 payment in 2022. However, some tax experts like Duke Alexander Moore felt that the stimulus checks plus any unclaimed child tax credits could amount to $5,000 payments for some families in the New Year.

Even if a US citizen has missed all the three stimulus checks sent by the US Government, they can still get the funds. Any Citizen who has missed the December 31 deadline can still get the stimulus payment in Recovery Rebate Credit on 2021 federal tax returns.

The IRS has clarified that knowing which stimulus checks the US citizen has missed is essential. The first and the second missed stimulus checks can be claimed on a 2020 tax return, while missing third payments can be claimed on a 2021 tax return. In addition, the IRS has clarified that if any citizen is eligible for the stimulus check, he will need to file a tax return for 2021, even if he never did earlier.
