Download PDF

Connecticut enacted a new Connecticut Child Tax Rebate for 2022. This is a one-time rebate of up to $250 per child (maximum amount of $750 for up to 3 children) intended to assist Connecticut families with children. Families can apply for this rebate from June 1 through July 31, 2022.

 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE A REBATE?

The Child Tax Rebate is available to Connecticut families who meet certain requirements. Families must be living in Connecticut, must have claimed at least one child 18 years of age or younger as a dependent on their 2021 federal income tax return, and meet certain income thresholds. Qualifying households will include single tax filers with children with income less than $100,000 and couples filing jointly with children with income less than $200,000. However, the only way families can actually determine if they are eligible for the rebate is by submitting an application to the CT Department of Revenue Services (DRS).

DO I NEED TO FILE AN APPLICATION TO RECEIVE A REBATE?

Yes. To receive the Child Tax Rebate, families must submit an application to the Department of Revenue Services (DRS) from June 1 through July 31, 2022.  The Child Tax Rebate application may only be submitted electronically through the DRS website. No paper applications will be accepted. The application will ask a series of questions and will use the answers provided to determine eligibility for the Child Tax Rebate.

 IF I AM ELIGIBLE, WHEN WILL I RECEIVE THE REBATE?

Checks will be issued by DRS to families who are eligible and submitted their application between June 1 and July 31. Rebate checks are expected to begin being issued in late August 2022.
