$1,600 Additional Money for New Yorkers

Eligible residents in New York are set to receive extra money of $1,600 or more through the Child Tax Credit. It is a federal program that allows taxpayers to collect an amount of $2,000 for every child under the age of 17 but there are states that offer separate CTC.

In a published article in The U.S. Sun, New York currently gives $1,600 in direct payments regardless of the income of the parents. Meanwhile, a bill is now moving to the Senate that aims to increase the amount of Child Tax Credit. If this gets approved, eligible parents will receive an increased CTC.
