Connecticut officials urge eligible families to apply for child tax refund


(WTNH) — Time is running out for hundreds of thousands of families in our state to get a $250 state check for every child they have.

About half of the families eligible for the refund have applied, but that means there are still thousands of families receiving the money but still need to register.

On Tuesday, Gov. Ned Lamont, surrounded by lawmakers, members of his administration and some heads of some nonprofit groups, held a press conference to spread the word. They say that at a time when money is tight for so many families, this is an opportunity they shouldn’t miss.

“Don’t leave this money behind. This money is yours. You’ve already paid taxes on it. Come claim it, we’ll send you a check in August and that check will help you,” said Senator Sean Scanlon.

“Give the parents a little break, give the parents a little break, help those parents through a tough inflationary time, and give them a little extra help,” Lamont said.

The deadline to apply is the end of July. The maximum discount is $250 per child for a maximum of three children. You are eligible if you are single or married, but file your taxes separately. You must earn $100,000 or less. If you filed as head of household, you must earn $160,000 or less. If you are married and filed jointly, you must earn $200,000 or less to get the refunds.

Rebates will be mailed at the end of August. To apply, click here.
