The IRS has partnered with non-profit organizations and others in 12 cities to help eligible families file a 2020 return or register for the monthly Advance Child Tax Credit ( ACTC) payments using the new Non-filer Sign-up Tool. The special events will take place on June 25-26 and July 9-10, 2021. Events will be held in Atlanta; New York; Detroit; Houston; Los Angeles; Las Vegas; Miami; Milwaukee; Philadelphia; Phoenix; St. Louis; and Washington.
The tool also helps individuals register for the $1,400 third round of Economic Impact Payments (EIPs) and claim the Recovery Rebate Credit for any amount they may have missed. The first monthly payments of the expanded and new ACTC from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) ( P.L. 117-2) will be made in July. Eligible taxpayers will receive a payment of up to $300 per month for each child under age 6, and up to $250 per month for each child ages 6 to 17. The dates for the ACTC payments are July 15, August 13, September 15, October 15, November 15 and December 15.
