Why is the IRS website saying I don't qualify for 2021 Child Tax advance. I claimed 3 dependants on 2020 return.

We do not know why the IRS site says you do not qualify---we cannot see what you entered about your children.  How old will they be at the end of 2021?

According to the IRS if your return, even an amended, is processing (ie showing only as received) you will not receive the advance child tax credit payments.  Go to topic Q B 12  as of June 30th there were 35 million US income tax returns that had not been processed and estimated only 3% of phone calls were being answered. Verify that here

Wow, thank you so much for that. Thats kinda what I figured, that is the case with my return. Have you heard if the IRS plans to distribute Back-pay or is it "you miss the date and your out"?

Nothing has been posted but most likely you will just have to reconcile on the return next year.
