Families with no income or low income could get at least $3,000 per child with the Child Tax Credit, plus $1400 with the third stimulus payment - even if they have never filed taxes before (and if they have not yet already filed taxes this year). It is estimated that at least 24,000 children in Arkansas could miss out on this money if their parent/guardian has not yet filed.
Individuals likely to miss out include people with low or no incomes, immigrant families and individuals experiencing homelessness. There is now an easy form for people to file on their mobile devices in 15 minutes or less in English or Spanish. People have until November 15 to sign up this year at GetCTC.org/arschools.
