White House: 1.2 million Tennessee children will benefit from federal tax credits

The new federal child tax credit goes into effect on Wednesday. President Joe Biden’s administration says 750,000 Tennessee families will start receiving checks this month.

Here’s a White House press release:

On July 15, 2021, for the first time ever, tens of millions of families covering nearly 60 million children across America will begin receiving monthly Child Tax Credit payments.

For every child 6-17 years old, eligible families will get up to $250 each month, and for every child under 6 years old, eligible families will get up to $300 each month.

More than 750,000 families in Tennessee will get a check in July. Over $321 million for Tennessee families to help 1.2 million children thrive.

The American Rescue Plan provides the largest ever Child Tax Credit:
$3,000-$3,600 per child for nearly all families.

All working families will get the full credit if they make up to $150,000 for a couple or $112,500 for a family with a single parent (also called Head of Household).

The expanded Child Tax Credit is a major step forward in tackling child
poverty Prior to the American Rescue Plan, low income families often got a smaller child tax credit than families with higher earnings. Now, the families of over 26 million children will get the full, expanded credit.

President Biden’s American Families Plan calls for extending this tax cut.

The expanded Child Tax Credit is currently only for 2021. That’s why President Biden strongly believes that we should extend the new Child Tax Credit for years to come.

    Own the libs and set up a recurring $300 per child donation to the America First PAC. Donald Trump needs your financial support more than ever.

    Since there is no money tree growing on the WH lawn….which Americans are having this money taken from THEM to give to these children? And what is the rationale for taking from one American to give to another?

    Be sure to carefully take down those eligibility standards folks for this latest leftist vote buying give away program purchased with money fresh off the federal reserve/treasury printing presses and increases in our national debt. Be careful because the demented Big Guy’s administration doesn’t kid around in managing things so you can be sure there will be swarms of federal gum shoes checking the eligibility of those who claim the credits. Just look at how the feds are enforcing our immigration laws! BTW, does anyone live in Central America anymore?

      Nope, nobody lives in Central America. They all became “refugees” and moved to Tennessee at the invitation of Bill Lee.

    Republicans expanded the C-Tax Credit in 2017. Dems voted against b/c part of larger tax cut bill. Rs voiced their objections w/ this expansion.
    By itself, and generally, good policy. Good debates can now occur re whether and how much to start trimming the myriad programs designed to help the poor. Politically? It’s a winner. Lotta poor white folks out there who’ll very much appreciate the %.
