While 90,000+ families have filed for the state’s new child tax rebate, many more Connecticut families are eligible for the funds.

Within its first week, 90,320 low- and moderate-income families applied for the $250-per-child rebate, said Rep. Sean Scanlon. As a result, 144,313 Connecticut children and their families will benefit from it. State officials estimate about 350,000 more Connecticut households are eligible for the rebate. Scanlon says he would consider it a “huge victory” if at least two-thirds of those remaining eligible families apply.

Here are the details of Connecticut’s new child tax rebate:

  • It is a $250-per-child rebate with a maximum of $750 per household.
  • It is available to single parents who have earned less than $100,000 in 2021.
  • Two-parent families that have earned less than $200,000 are also eligible.
  • It can be claimed on behalf of children born on or before Dec. 31, 2021.
  • Families must file with the state’s Department of Revenue Services between June 1 and July 31.
  • The Department of Revenue Services is expected to mail payments in August 2022.

Help is available for families applying for this tax rebate. The Connecticut chapter of United Way and its 2-1-1 infoline service is answering questions and helping families without computer access. They are joined by 11 more not-for-profit human service agencies and policy groups:

  • Connecticut Association for Community Action
  • Connecticut Association for Human Services
  • Connecticut Legal Services
  • Connecticut Voices for Children
  • Connecticut Women’s Education and Legal Fund
  • Greater Hartford Legal Aid
  • HRA of New Britain
  • New Haven Legal Assistance Association
  • Simplify CT
  • Unidad Latina en Accion
  • The Village for Families & Children

Many early applicants have stated that the funds will be used to help cover grocery bills, past-due rent, and/or childcare costs.
