to be eligible  you must have:

1) Filed a 2019 or 2020 tax return and claimed the Child Tax Credit on the return; or
Given us your information in 2020 to receive the Economic Impact Payment using the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool;

and
2) A main home in the United States for more than half the year (the 50 states and the District of Columbia) or file a joint return with a spouse who has a main home in the United States for more than half the year;

and
3) A qualifying child who is under age 18 at the end of 2021 and who has a valid Social Security number;

and
4) Made less than certain income limits.

These advance payment amounts begin to be reduced if your modified AGI exceeds:

$150,000 if married and filing a joint return or if filing as a qualifying widow or widower;
$112,500 if filing as head of household; or
$75,000 if you are a single filer or are married and filing a separate return.

 

 

if you meet all 4 tests then you answered a question incorrectly.
