Starting July 15 and running into next year (22), eligible families will get up to $3,000 for kids between the ages of 6 and 17 and up to $3,600 for children under age 6 over all the payments. Half of the money you qualify for will come as monthly payments through December; the rest will arrive when you file your tax return next year.
The IRS portals are designed to make the process smooth and to make sure you get the right amount of money. Using the two IRS portals, you can check on the status of your payments online, see whether your money is coming as a direct deposit or in the mail as a check or opt out of the monthly schedule and receive one payment in 2022.
