TAXING TIMES Child tax credit 2021 schedule – Here’s why you didn’t get October payment as IRS share



THE Child Tax Credit schedule has caused confusion for some parents who are missing their October payment.

For October, most families were slated to get up to $300 in child tax credits per child.

You should check with the IRS to be sure your banking and address information is correct and up to date if you haven't received your October payment.


The IRS has an online portal that Americans can use to check the status of their checks.

Americans can also use USPS Informed Delivery, which refers to the agency's free mail-tracking service that scans your letters and can send you an image each time your letter is delivered, to check on mailed payments.

It is good for Americans who do not have bank accounts and are receiving money by check, which takes seven or more delivery days.








VP HARRIS SAYS CHILD TAX CREDIT IS 'WORKING'

Vice President Kamala Harris wrote about the success of the child tax credit on Twitter on Monday.









CONTACTING THE IRS

The live assistance line might still be limited, as the agency has been busy with delayed stimulus checks, unemployment tax refunds, and tax returns.


So, it might be quicker to get an answer through the IRS’ frequently asked questions section.

And it’s important to note that the IRS does not have a separate contact number for child tax credits; the number for tax-related questions is 800-829-1040.


SOME FAMILIES HAVE NOT RECEIVED OCTOBER PAYMENT


One parent vented on Twitter on Friday: “I didn’t get my September and October child tax credit.

“I got July and August just fine but I’m missing two months.”

While another added yesterday: “I did not get my October child tax credit but I’ve gotten the ones previously. Really need this badly right now!”


It comes after a technical glitch last month meant around 2 percent of eligible families – amounting to 700,000 – didn’t get the credits on time.
