Hi! The payments you are referring are an advance of a credit you will be receiving when you file your 2021 tax return. Each payment you receive will decrease your refund by the amount you receive.

Thank you. So if I normally get back $3800 or so for tax refund, and will be receiving $4800 in advance of the child tax credit, I should expect to not get a tax return? It's very confusing how it seems like it's "free" money, but it's really just an advancement?
