If you don’t have to file taxes, you may need to register for monthly advance Child Tax Credit Payments

June 14, 2021

The IRS Non-filer Sign-up Tool offers a free and easy way for eligible people who don't normally have to file taxes to provide the IRS the basic information needed to figure and issue advance Child Tax Credit payments.

You can use this tool if you did not file a tax return for 2019 or 2020 and did not use the IRS Non-filers tool to register for Economic Impact Payments.

The tool enables you to provide required information about yourself, your qualifying children, other dependents, and your bank information. With this information, the IRS can deposit payments directly into your account.

See Advance Child Tax Credit Payments in 2021 on IRS.gov for this tool, details on eligibility, timing of monthly payments, resources and more.
