Child Tax Credit
Many taxpayers with young children are receiving monthly child tax credit payments, which are advance payments of one-half of the 2021 Child Tax Credit. The other one-half of the CTC will be claimed on your 2021 tax return.
You can manage your CTC payments on www.irs.gov. Here you can:
- check if you are enrolled to receive the CTC payments
- unenroll from the advance CTC payments
- update your bank account and mailing address
- view your payments
- coming soon – update marital status, dependents, income, or re-enroll if you previously unenrolled
NEW! IRS Online Account for Individuals
The IRS is now offering an online account for individuals to view specific details about their federal tax account. To set up your account (optional), visit www.irs.gov/account. Features of the new individual online account are:
- Access your tax records – data from recent and previously filed tax returns, Economic Stimulus payments received
- View balance owed and notices – payment history, digital copies of certain IRS notices
- Learn about payment plans and view details if you have one
- Make online payments, view payment history, view pending or scheduled payments
- Update address and preferences for email notifications
- Manage who can represent you before the IRS. Approve and electronically sign Power of Attorney requests sent to you by your tax professional.
IRS IP PIN
The IP PIN is a six digit number that prevents someone else from filing a tax return with your Social Security number. If you are a confirmed victim of tax-related identity theft, then you will automatically receive an IP PIN each year to file your taxes.
The IRS is now offering a voluntary program for any taxpayer, spouse, or dependent to request an IP PIN. You must pass a rigorous online verification process. A new IP PIN will be sent to you each year to be used when e-filing your annual tax return.
With tax identity theft on the rise every year, consider requesting the IP PIN. Start the process early to receive your 2021 IP PIN this coming January. For more information, visit https://www.irs.gov/
