The Internal Revenue Service has released the Spanish language version of the Child Tax Credit (CTC) Eligibility Assistant. This digital assistant can help the people in your program to determine whether they qualify for the credit. Plus, the online tool is beneficial for families who don’t usually file a federal tax return, have not yet filed a 2019 or 2020 tax return, have little to no income, are homeless, or are underserved.
Once they have used this tool, they will take the next step using other available means, including the Non-file Sign-up or the IRS Free File system. And for those worried about providing specific information, the tool does not request personally identifiable information for anyone in the family. Neither the answers supplied by the user nor the results are retained by the IRS.
