Advance Child Tax Credit Payments will be issued beginning July 15. Eligible families can receive up to $300 per month per child under age 6 and up to $250 per month for children age 6 and above. Even those with no earned income or who don’t owe any federal income taxes can still receive the credit, if eligible. To receive these advance payments, you must have filed a 2019 or 2020 tax return.
