About this Deal
The child tax credit payment schedule will go out monthly starting in July, IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig said Tuesday. The revised child tax credit for 2021 will bring you monthly payments until the end of the year, with the rest of the money arriving with your taxes next year. Calculating your child tax credit payment total is complicated and multilayered, which is why we have a calculator tool below.
For qualified parents and caregivers, the new credit could bring between $500 and $3,600 per child, depending on their age and your shared custody situation. But if your income is higher than the cutoff or your child doesn't meet all the requirements, you could get a smaller amount or none at all.
Use our child tax credit calculator to estimate how much money to expect in total. We'll also explain what happens if your child reaches one of the age brackets by the end of 2021. While you're here, this is what's going on with the plus-up payments from the third stimulus checks. Also, here's what we know about a fourth stimulus check, the situation with student loan forgiveness and savings for health care like cheaper insurance. This story was updated with new information.
Calculate your full 2021 child tax credit payment amount
Child tax credit payments for 2021 allot up to $3,600 per child aged 5 and under, and $3,000 for kids between the ages of 6 and 17. You can get a $500 total payment for dependents who are 18 and for full-time college students between 19 and 24 years old.
If your adjusted gross income, or AGI, is equal to or less than $75,000 as a single filer, $112,500 as a head of household or $150,000 filing jointly, you'll receive the full amount. If your income is higher, your child tax credit payments will begin to phase out by $50 for every $1,000 of income over the threshold.
This calculator does not store your data. The results are based on our current knowledge of the law and should be treated as broad estimates only (the IRS will determine the final amount). We suggest you consult a financial planner for a more personalized estimate.
