Families, Get Ready! Bigger Child Tax Credits Coming Your Way in 2023: Here’s How to Benefit!


Bipartisan tax deal could boost child tax credit for 2023. What it means for families this tax season


A bipartisan tax agreement was announced recently, proposing boosts to the child tax credit for 2023, which will affect tax filing.

This plan aims to expand access, increase the refundable credit, and add future inflation adjustments.

Retroactive to 2023, the maximum refundable credit would increase from $1,600 to $1,800 for that year, reaching $1,900 in 2024 and $2,000 in 2025, with adjustments for inflation.

Refundable credit eligibility would also be expanded for larger families, allowing them to benefit more.

There’s urgency to enact this legislation before the tax season opens on January 29, considering its potential impact in alleviating childhood poverty, which surged in 2022 after pandemic relief expired.

However, the plan faces potential hurdles, given the limited vehicles to pass legislation and other legislative priorities looming.

With fiscal year 2024 deadlines approaching and the possibility of a partial government shutdown, passing this tax agreement as a stand-alone bill might be challenging.

It could potentially take a backseat or be sidelined in favor of other concerns.
