Child Tax Credit Payment Eligibility Pending. We have 2 kids. The expanded child tax credit covers children from birth to 17.
It could take up to 60 days to receive a response. Its worth noting that if the IRS says that your eligibility is pending - you. You can check the status of your eligibility using the Child Tax Credit Update Portal.
If the IRS processes our amended return within the 16 weeks they promise maybe we will get the our eligibility approved in time for August payments but Im not holding my breath.
For taxpayers who qualify for the Advanced Child Tax Credit or Economic Impact Payments after their returns or amended returns are processed we will automatically make any additional payments. If the IRS cannot confirm eligibility this year youll receive the full child tax credit amount when you file your taxes next year. If the Child Tax Credit Update Portal returns a pending eligibility status it means the IRS is still trying to determine whether you qualify. Do you have a return that has not yet been processed in the system.
