IRS Advanced Child Tax Credit Information

The IRS has asked PMSD to share the following information with parents, grandparents, and guardians.  Please click on the links to find more information. 


The IRS has created a special Advance Child Tax Credit Payments in 2021 page at IRS.gov/childtaxcredit2021, which is designed to provide the most up-to-date information about the credit and the advance payments, and includes tools designed to help families manage and monitor these payments.  For a comprehensive link to all tools and resources, see 2021 Child Tax Credit and Advance Child Tax Credit Payments: Resources and Guidance.

Below are some quick links to the available resources on IRS.gov and some additional resources from Stakeholder Liaison.
