Families Can Apply for a Child Tax Rebate Starting June 1

May 31, 2022

The $250-per-child one-time Connecticut Child Tax Rebate will open applications for families beginning June 1. This rebate is a one-time $250 credit per child, with a maximum of three credits for families with three or more children.

Who is Eligible for the Child Tax Credit?

Any Connecticut resident who claimed at least one dependent child under the age of 18 on their 2021 federal income tax may be eligible. To receive the maximum credit of $250 per child, a single parent or married parents filing separately must earn $100,000 or less; a head of household must earn $160,000 or less; and married parents filing jointly must make $200,000 or less. Those with higher income rates may be eligible for reduced credits (the phase out is 10% per $1,000 over the full benefit thresholds). The application period will run from June 1 to July 31 with funds distributed to families beginning in late August.

The application will be available starting June 1 online here.
