Is there a chance of a stimulus payment of $2,000/month per household coming to the U.S. in 2022?
The Child Tax Credit ended in December with the final payment going out on December 15, 2021. There have been talks about it continuing into 2022 with up to $2,000 per month per household being available to those who are eligible.
The government has been discussing this issue back and forth for the past several months now.
Fox Business says:
Democrats are making last-ditch efforts to save a key piece of their ambitious tax-and-spending bill, days after Sen. Joe Manchin torpedoed the $1.7 trillion package.
What's the new 2022 stimulus child tax credit being talked about?
It's still up in the air what the proposed 2022 stimulus child tax credit would look like in terms of eligibility and if the amount would remain the same or change.
People are calling this tax credit poverty-fighting as many families might be facing poverty-stricken conditions without it.
"We want to do everything humanly possible to keep the child tax credit on track,"
What happens with the child tax credit ending?
People will be lowering their household income by the amount of the tax credit every month, which can make them more susceptible to experiencing difficulty making mortgage and rent payments, paying bills, and food insecurity.
