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 in the year, which made significant expansions to the CTC. Unfortunately, this law only made the changes for 2021. Because Congress has not renewed the CTC expansion for 2022, there are currently no monthly payments. But, if eligible, you can still receive the second half of your payment in one lump sum by filing a 2021 tax return.

You can file a tax return for free with GetYourRefund.
