What is the child tax credit?

The child tax credit is a tax break families can receive if they have qualifying children. The amount a family can receive is up to $2,000 per child, but it’s only partially refundable. That means if not all is applied to any taxes you owe to lower your tax bill, you may not receive the additional money left over. 

The refundable portion is called the additional child tax credit, and this year the refundable amount is $1,600. 

When to expect your child tax credit refund

Most additional child tax credit-related refunds should be available in bank accounts or on debit cards by Feb. 27, the IRS said, if taxpayers choose direct deposit and there are no other issues with their tax return. Some could even see their payments deposited a few days sooner.

The delay, according to the IRS, is because the agency cannot issue refunds involving the additional child tax credit (and the earned income tax credit) before mid-February. The agency, by law, is required to use the extra time to prevent fraudulent refunds.

You can check Where’s My Refund? for your personalized refund date. Where’s My Refund? will be updated with projected deposit dates for most early EITC/ACTC refund filers by Feb. 17.
