I was getting Child Tax Credit monthly payments in 2021. Why didn’t I get my CTC monthly payment in 2022?

Monthly payments of the Child Tax Credit (CTC) started in July 2021 based on a law Congress passed earlier that year, which made significant expansions to the CTC. Unfortunately, this law only applied to 2021. Because Congress did not renew the CTC expansion for 2022, there were no monthly payments last year. However, if you did not receive CTC on our 2021 tax return, you still may be eligible to claim it by filing an amendment for your 2021 return.

You can file a 2021 tax return through our GetYourRefund full service.
