$ 1,800 aid to ship this month after ‘surprise’ payments were revealed in November
Inhabitants of the United States who are struggling financially could receive a help of $ 1,800 by the end of this year, after 36 million families already received the money earlier this week, as homes recover from the economic damage caused. due to the coronavirus pandemic, The Sun newspaper reported on Friday, December 3.
The news of the “stimulus” aid of $ 1,800 comes just as some Americans can expect to receive a “surprise” stimulus check of $ 285 before the Christmas holidays, the newspaper also said on Friday.
‘Gift’ before Christmas: $ 1800 aid
In Maine, the extra stimulus money will be given to more than 500,000 residents as a way of thanking workers who kept essential businesses open during the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Sun report said.
The Maine Department of Financial and Administrative Services began issuing these checks on November 15 and will continue to send them through the end of the year. Maine isn’t the only state sending extra money ahead of the holidays this year, according to The Sun, as California and Illinois also send extra money.
$ 1,800 help through the child tax credit
Millions of Americans who continue to struggle with the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic could receive an aid check for $ 1,800 before the end of 2021 as part of expanded child tax credit payments.
According to a study conducted by the University of Michigan, one in 10 families who are eligible for child tax credit checks have yet to receive their payments. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Child Tax Credit was increased after the pandemic to $ 3,600 in aid per child under 6 and $ 3,000 for children ages 6 to 17.
Who could receive the check for $ 1800?
Eligible families can receive monthly checks of $ 300 for each child under the age of 6, and children over that age, up to age 17, can receive $ 250 per child, according to another publication in The Sun newspaper.
The monthly payments have been made between July and December 2021, which means that a family with a child under the age of 6 will have received $ 1,800 when the advance payments end in December. If an eligible taxpayer has not claimed the above payments, they could receive a check for $ 1,800 in December.
What happens if you did not apply for the credits before the deadline?
Unfortunately, those who have not claimed previous payments and did not do so before November 15, will have to wait until next year as the IRS closed applications for payments on November 15.
If a taxpayer is eligible and did not apply before the deadline, they will still be able to claim the child tax credits in 2022 when they file their 2021 tax return. Once this is done, the IRS will send the entire money to them in a single payment.
In addition to the $ 1,800 aid, will there be a fourth federal stimulus check?
The chances of a fourth federal stimulus payment are slim, The Sun explained. “At this time, a fourth stimulus check from the federal government is unlikely,” Local12 reported long ago, a decision that so far it seems that authorities would not be considering changing.
However, several states are making their own versions of certain stimulus payments for all residents or certain workers like teachers. On the other hand, even undocumented people would receive an aid check if they reside in New York, The Sun noted. For more details read this note.
