Using Your Tax Credit to Pay Your Nanny

Posted by HomeWork Solutions on 6/29/21 10:00 AM

Starting July 15 and continuing through the end of 2021, many parents will be receiving a child tax credit as part of the American Rescue Plan. The tax credit is $3,600 for children younger than age six and $3,000 for those between six and seventeen. The payments are an ‘advance’ on 2021 taxes and will arrive in monthly installments on the 15th of every month. The total credit is available for married couples with children earning a combined $150,000 or less that file jointly or $75,000 for individuals. For people making more, the money will be reduced accordingly. Most people will get the funds through direct deposit into their bank account or how you filed your 2020 taxes.
