Families May Be Eligible for the 2022 Connecticut Child Tax Rebate
Connecticut families with children may be eligible for up to $750 ($250 per child up to three children) through the Connecticut Child Tax Rebate, which was recently authorized by the Connecticut General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Ned Lamont.
Eligibility for the rebate is based on certain criteria. To qualify, recipients must reside in Connecticut, must have claimed at least one child (18 years of age or younger) as a dependent on 2021 federal income tax return, and must meet income requirements.
The income requirements are based on 2021 federal income tax return:
Less than or equal to $100,000 if Single or Married Filing Separately
Less than or equal to $160,000 if Head of Household
Less than or equal to $200,000 if Married Filing Jointly or Qualifying Widow(er)
Individuals with income slightly above the requirements may still be eligible for a credit of less than $250 per child, depending on income levels.
The Child Tax Rebate is a one-time rebate and can not be claimed on any Connecticut income tax return. The only way to receive the rebate is to submit an application to the Department of Revenue Services (DRS) at portal.ct.gov/DRS.
Applications will be available from June 1 through July 31, 2022. Applications will not be accepted after the deadline.
