A Central New York non-profit is offering assistance to families who have yet to register for the Child Income Tax Credit. PEACE Inc.'s Free Tax Prep Program is encouraging families to reach out for assistance or to answer questions.

The American Rescue Plan Act expanded eligibility to be more inclusive of immigrant and lower-income filers. It removed the minimum income requirements, raised the qualifying ages, and is providing advanced payments. Additionally, the Child Tax Credit, or any stimulus check, will not affect immigration status. The IRS does not share citizenship information with any other federal agency.

The deadline to enroll for the Child Tax Credit is November 15th. You can contact PEACE Inc.'s Tax Prep Program at taxes@peace-caa.org or 315-634-3756.
