Helping American Families Abroad receive the Child Tax Credit



American families abroad could be eligible for the increased $3,000 or $3,600 Child Tax Credit in addition to the Economic Stimulus Payments. This means that a family of four could be eligible for up to $15,000 from the IRS. In order to be eligible, American families need to file a tax return. This webinar will aim to educate American families to ensure those most in need can receive the money sooner rather than later.
