Child Tax Credit : How to sign up, make sure you receive direct monthly payments in July

Monthly payments worth $250 or $300 per child are set to begin going out on July 15. However, some families will need to use a tool on the Internal Revenue Service's website to ensure they receive the money.

Most families who are eligible for the expanded Child Tax Credit will automatically receive direct payments beginning in July, but some will need to use a tool on the Internal Revenue Service's website to ensure they receive the money.The American Rescue Plan, a $1.9 trillion relief package passed in March, increased the Child Tax Credit by $1,000 and $1,600, making the credit $3,600 for children under 6 and $3,000 for children up to 17.

The new law also changed how people receive the credit, going from a lump sum when they file their taxes to monthly payments that will run from July through December.However, not everyone is eligible for the increased credit. Individuals must have an adjusted gross income of $75,000 and joint filers must make less than $150,000. Heads of households are eligible for the full payment as long as they earn below $112,500.

The Non-Filer Signup Tool, available on the IRS'

website, will ask a person to input their name, address and Social Security numbers. It also gives taxpayers an opportunity to provide direct deposit information, which can speed up the payment process, and information on their qualifying children.Anyone who used the tool last year to ensure they received their economic impact payments, commonly referred to as stimulus checks, should not have to re-register.

The first payment is set to go out on July 15 and then on the 15th of every month after through December unless the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday. Each of the six payments will be worth 1/12 what the IRS believes a taxpayer is owed and the other half of the credit will be paid after a person files their 2021 tax return.
