Assemblyman Colton Alerts Families That the Deadline to Sign-Up for Monthly Advanced Child Tax Credit Is November 15

Assemblyman William Colton (D – Gravesend, Bensonhurst, Bath Beach, Dyker Heights) alerts families that the deadline to sign up for monthly advanced child tax credit is November 15, 2021.

“The American Rescue Plan that passed in March has expanded the existing child tax credit by adding advanced monthly payments to many Americans. Millions of Americans have already received four monthly payments through this plan. If you’ve filed taxes in 2019 or 2020, or if you signed up with the Non-Filer tool last year to receive a stimulus check from the Internal Revenue Service, then you will get the monthly Child Tax Credit automatically,” Colton stated.

“If you did not file taxes in 2019 or 2020 and would like to receive Child Tax Credit you must register now, before the deadline. This year you were only required to file taxes if you earned $24,800 as a married couple, $18,650 as a head of household, or $12,400 as a single filer. These payments do not count as income and they will not affect the eligibility for other federal benefits like SNAP, Medicate, or WIC. For more information on how to register you can contact my office by calling 718-236-1598 or visit a non-filer sign-up tool at,” Colton added.

List of things you will need to complete the process:

  • Social Security number for all family members or (ITIN)
  • A reliable mailing address
  • E-mail address or phone number
  • Bank account information – (for direct deposit)
