US NEWS: White House begins public push for a child tax credit

The White House sought Monday to lift awareness of the federal government’s new expanded child decrease, which can start paying out monthly in July to families with children who are 17 years old and younger.

Vice President Kamala Harris spoke at a recreation center in Pittsburgh as a part of a broader push to push the program in partnership with churches, schools, and other organizations.

“When more families comprehend how they’ll get the relief, that’s how we are going to be ready to lift our kids out of poverty,” Harris said.

The administration has launched the website https://childtaxcredit.gov with details for potential recipients. As a part of President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, eligible families can receive the maximum amount of $3,600 for every child under the age of 6. The step-down is going to be $3,000 annually per child between the ages of 6 and 17.

The payments are to be made monthly, a primary for the program. People can register for the program whether or not they didn’t fully file their taxes.

The program is slated to expire after one year, though Biden has proposed extending it through 2025 with the final word goal of creating it permanently.
