Don't miss possible money.

If your income was significantly reduced, unemployed, had a newborn and didn’t receive the child tax credit, college student or never received your last stimulus. You may qualify for a Tax Refund. Find out how and file today.

What if I Don't Earn an Income? Do I Still File a Tax Return?


If you had very low or no income last year and are not required to file, you may wish to file anyway to claim certain refundable tax credits. Refundable tax credits can provide you with a tax refund even when you do not work. For example, you may qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit, which are refundable tax credits.

Even if you earned very little last year, you might wish to file a tax return simply to get back any taxes withheld from your pay. This usually happens when a taxpayer is employed for only a small part of the calendar year. Also, if you’re attending college or a higher education program and earn little or no income, you may wish to file a return to take advantage of the American Opportunity credit.

Child tax credit payments: Here's how to get the rest of your money in 2022

Many parents received half of their child tax credit money in advance payments last year. Learn how to get the remaining money this year.

When you file you can claim the rest of your enhanced child tax credit money. The payments ended in December, but there’s still more money parents will receive with their 2021 tax refunds. The remaining half of the expanded child tax credit for 2021 will become available to parents when they file their tax returns this year.

To make sure you get the rest of your child tax credit money, keep Letter 6419 from the IRS. It contains details about your child tax credit money that you’ll need for your taxes. If you haven’t received that form yet, keep an eye out for it in the mail.

When you file your taxes, you’ll be able to claim any child tax credit money you didn’t receive in 2021 — at least half, or more if you opted out of advance child tax credit payments or had a new baby later in 2021. The IRS letter will tell you how much money you received in 2021 and the number of qualifying dependents used to calculate payments.

How to get your child tax credit money if you had a newborn last year



If you had a baby by the end of December — or adopted one — you’ll be eligible for up to $3,600 for that child when you file your taxes. That includes back pay for the July through December advance payments and the chunk coming with your refund.

You should get that money when you claim your child on your tax return, which will let the IRS know about your household changes.
