CT Child Tax Payment Providing Boost to Families

June 20, 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 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 payment!

This tax 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 payment and to submit an application with the Department of Revenue Services before the July 31 deadline, click here.
