“Families come in all shapes and sizes” the IRS notes. Some may not realize that, depending on the makeup of their household, they qualify for monthly advance child tax credit payments in 2021. Qualifying children may include foster children, stepchildren, grandchildren, or the taxpayer’s siblings or other relatives. An eligible family may receive up to $3,000 per child, age 6 to 17 in 2021, or up to $3,600 per child under age 6 in 2021. A taxpayer’s main home must be in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia for more than half of the year. To check eligibility, click here: https://bit.ly/3aA3G6t
