The fourth stimulus check is a distant reality and the only payment that Americans can hope for is the second phase of the Child Tax Stimulus payments. The enhanced CTC payments were signed by President Biden within the $1.9T American Rescue Plan.

The CTC provides between $3,000 and $3,600 for every child depending on their age. While the lower amount is for children between 6 and 17, the higher amount is for children below the age of 6.

The amount was distributed in phases. The first phase of this stimulus check was divided into 6 monthly installments of between $250 and 300 starting July 2021 through December 2021.

The rest 50% will be given to the families against the 2021 income tax returns to be filed in 2022. It will either be deducted from the income tax payable or sent as a refund stimulus check.
