On Child Tax Credit Awareness Day, North Carolina Democratic Party Highlights Direct Payments Soon Going to Over Two Million Families
Beginning in July, North Carolina families will receive monthly payments as part of the Child Tax Credit enhanced in Democrats’ American Rescue Plan
Today is Child Tax Credit Awareness Day, aimed at ensuring parents know about the American Rescue Plan’s historic expansion of the Child Tax Credit and how it will benefit their families. In North Carolina specifically, the tax credit will provide relief of up to $1,600 per child to the families of over two million children, lifting 137,000 children out of poverty.
“Thanks to President Biden and Democrats, the American Rescue Plan will soon deliver major tax relief for working families with children through a historic expansion of the Child Tax Credit, and families will start to see those checks in their bank accounts next month. Despite opposition from the entire Republican delegation from North Carolina, including Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr, the expanded child tax credit will lift 137,000 children out of poverty here in North Carolina, help bolster financial security, and spur economic growth in our state,” said NCDP Chair Bobbie Richardson.
