November child tax credit payment comes tomorrow. How to track it



The fifth child tax credit payment is scheduled to arrive via direct deposit tomorrow. However, if you haven’t received any child tax credit checks or if you’re missing money from one of the other months, we’ll help you figure out what’s going on. Several glitches have caused child tax credit problems for parents each month.

We found that if only one parent in a married household made a correction to banking info or a mailing address, it could have reduced the amount of the payment. Also, parents might have received more money than they qualify for due to outdated tax information from old returns, which could also affect their taxes in 2022.

We’re here to help you figure out how to track your money online using the IRS Update Portal and file a payment trace if a few weeks have passed and there’s no sign of your money. Here’s what you need to know if you plan to opt out of the final monthly check before the next deadline, Nov. 29 (which means you’ll get a slightly bigger check in 2022). The deadline to opt out of November’s check has passed. Also, here’s the latest on the child tax credit extension. We’ve updated this story.

What should I do if I haven’t gotten any child tax credit payments?

The 2021 advance monthly child tax credit payments started automatically in July. Even though child tax credit payments are scheduled to arrive on certain dates, you may not have gotten the money as expected for a few reasons. The IRS may not have an up-to-date mailing address or banking information for you. The mailed check may be held up by the US Postal Service or if it was a recent payment, the direct deposit payment may still be being processed.

It’s also important to note that if you’ve been a victim of tax-related identity theft, you won’t receive child tax credit payments until those issues have been resolved with the IRS. If the issues aren’t cleared up this year, you’ll get the full amount when you file taxes in 2022. And keep in mind that even if you have unpaid state or federal debt, you should still receive child tax credit payments if you’re eligible.

In September, roughly 700,000 families did not receive a payment due to an IRS technical error. Problems with missing payments were also reported in previous months among “mixed-status” families, where one parent is a US citizen and the other is an immigrant, though that issue should have been corrected for later payments.

Another possible reason your check may be delayed is if your 2020 return is still being processed; the IRS is still working through a backlog of returns. If your information has changed or you had a baby recently, the IRS may not know that it owes you the credit, especially if the tax agency is basing the credit on your 2019 tax return while the latest one is processing.

How do I get an update on my child tax credit check status?

You can expect recurring monthly payments to hit your bank account on the 15th through December. According to the IRS, you can use the Child Tax Credit Update Portal to see your processed monthly payment history. It’ll be a good way to watch for pending payments that haven’t gone through your bank account yet.

If you still haven’t received the money you’re owed, see if the Processed Payments section of the update portal has any information. If the payment was delivered, make sure your address and banking information are correct — especially if you’ve moved or changed banks.

To check on your payments online, you’ll need to register with your IRS username and ID.me account information. First-time users will need to have a photo ID (it’s one of the ways the IRS is trying to protect your information from identity theft).

If you’re checking your bank account, look for the deposit labeled CHILDCTC. If your bank has not received the deposit from the IRS, it won’t have any processing information for you if you’re trying to locate your check. If you think there’s an error, start by using the update portal to double-check the bank details the IRS has on file, including your account information and routing numbers…Read more>>
