Be aware of the upcoming November 15th deadline for families to sign up for the Child Tax Credit (CTC). According to results from the Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey, three in 10 families that received monthly Advance Child Tax Credit (CTC) payments spent them on kids’ school expenses, and 1 in 4 families with young children used them to cover child care costs. Learn more at https://childtaxcredit.gov/ and the Spanish CTC Website.
Families, including those who aren’t required to file taxes, can go to GetCTC.org, a tool that is in English and Spanish, and mobile friendly. Most families can complete it within about 15 minutes!
