Filing a tax return for 2020 is the only way to prove to the IRS that your child is eligible to receive the credit, meaning that all Americans with children should file a return regardless of income. This will ensure you receive the child tax credit. The deadline to file taxes is Monday, May 17th.
Please note the Commission for Economic Opportunity (CEO) located at 165 Amber Ln, Wilkes-Barre or 570-826-0510 is providing the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VIDA) program to help families prepare their taxes at no cost.
