The $400.00/child Tax Credit!

  1. My oldest daughter called me the other day excited about having received the tax credit for parents with children. She and her husband have seven children, but only received $400/child up to four children since that is all the child tax credit will reimburse for.

    Both my daughter and her hubby are hardworking middleclass tax paying citizens, and I was very very thrilled that they received this refund just in time to buy school uniforms and supplies for the children.

    Hopefully, my two other daughters will receive their child-tax-credit soon as they too have kids to get ready for school. They all deserve the credit because they all work their buns off for this country too.

    Anyone else get their child tax credit yet? Spend it or save it?

    I'm not getting one! I didn't make enough money last year!
    I hope they give them out again next year! I'm sure to qualify then.

    I got mine two weeks ago this Friday. I didn't even know it was coming boy did it come at a great time . Does she get $400/child or did you say 4 was the limit from her seven? If it's 4/4. Talk about a blessing. I spent all mine my husband and I have four chidren three in school and they need uniforms . Wish I could have saved some money. Was this just a one time deal or will this be yearly?

    Four was the limit from her seven, but she and her husband were still ecstatic about the whopping check of $1600.00!! It came just in time to help them get the kids ready for school (uniforms, books, supplies, etc.) It put a smile on my face and lightened my heart to hear her excitement, too. I was just about to mail them money for all seven kids school needs too. :chuckle

    Here is a link that I found on USA Today regarding the child tax credit for those of you who want to know if you will get one, or why you may not:

    Momof2bys2grls-I got mine then too. I was expecting it. I went online to see how much mine would be and when to expect it. I was very thankful. Just in time for school. Are you in Memphis Momof2bys2grls? My kids were in uniform but now they're going to County schools.
