JIming is running out for Connecticut families to claim their child tax refund as the July 31 deadline approaches.
Eligible families can receive payments of up to $250 per child for up to three children. On Tuesday, only about half of eligible recipients claimed their refund, according to the Connecticut Mirror.
CHILDBIRTH COSTS $3,000 FOR THE INSURED
To be eligible for the refund, applicants must be Connecticut residents, have a child 18 or younger on their 2021 federal tax return, and must meet the required income threshold.
The income threshold is $100,000 or less for people filing taxes as single or married filing separately and $200,000 or less for couples filing jointly. The program has an online application.
Connecticut lawmakers approved reimbursement as part of a pandemic relief program. Governor Ned Lamont has indicated that he would like to make credit an ongoing policy in the future.
