Jhe Governor of Connecticut Ned Lamont announced an initiative allowing families based in the state to receive a tax refund of up to $250 per child for up to three children, in accordance with the recently passed 2022 Connecticut Child Tax Refund which was signed earlier this month.
In this article, we will explain to you who is eligible for the Child tax creditsand what is the latest information from the Governor, Ned Lamont, himself.
Who can benefit from the child tax credit?
According to the governor’s website, any Connecticut resident who declared at least one dependent child under the age of 18 on their 2021 federal tax return is eligible for Child tax credit.
Although to receive the maximum refund of $250 per child (up to three children), the income guidelines state that an individual, whether single or married, but filing taxes separately must earn $100,000 dollars or less.
Heads of households must earn $160,000 or less, while married couples who file taxes together cannot exceed $200,000.
Are you eligible for the child tax credit if your income exceeds the figures mentioned?
People who cross these thresholds are still eligible for a refund, although the refund is at a reduced level and is calculated according to their income.
What the Governor Said About the Child Tax Credit
Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont has had his say on the child tax credits available in the state.
“In addition to making groundbreaking investments in child care, crime prevention, environmental protection and care for the most vulnerable, the budget we have just enacted provides specifically targeted assistance for low- and middle-income families with children,” Governor Lamont said.
“The application period for this discount will take place over the next few weeks, with discounts being paid out at the end of August, just in time for the start of the next school year.
“I strongly urge all eligible families in Connecticut to submit a claim so that the rebate can be sent to you without delay.”
