CT Child Tax Credit Providing Boost to Families

June 8, 2022

Connecticut's first ever child tax payment has just gone into effect and it's already a massive success!

Since applications were first opened to the public on June 1, more than 90,000 households have filed to receive the $250 per child tax payment (up to three children). This payment was included in the $650 million tax relief package that House Democrats approved as part of the 2022 state budget to give much-needed financial relief and flexibility to working families across Connecticut.

If you have a child born before Jan. 1, 2022 and haven't yet applied, I want to remind you that there is still time to apply to receive your check!

This payment is available to single parents who earned less than $100,000 and two-parent households that made less than $200,000 during the 2021 tax year.

For more information on the tax payment and to submit an application with the Department of Revenue Services before the July 31 deadline, click the button below.
