  • IRS authorities prepare to issue child tax credit payments.
  • The stimulus payments are for the child tax credit.
  • In approximately ten days the payments will reach households in the US.

In about ten days, parents in the United States will receive good news from the IRS for once. On approximately November 15 payments to those who enrolled in the child tax credit program will be issued, according to an article in The Sun.

However, not everyone will be eligible for this benefit since parents who decided not to enroll in the program will not receive anything this month. That means those parents won’t receive the child tax credit payments. Not only that, parents who unenrolled will not be eligible to receive this help again.

Apparently, IRS authorities considering making the child tax credit available to those who unenrolled at some point in the future. However, there is no date set at this point. For those parents who are enrolled in the program, it’s recommended that they use the IRS portal to manage their payments and receive information.

The child tax credit payments are valued at up to $300 a month for each child. They are meant to help cover basic needs and to contribute to the wellbeing of children whose parents have suffered financially during the pandemic.

The worry over having to reimburse the IRS when taxes are due has caused some eligible parents to opt out of the program. This is because the adjusted gross income limit to qualify for the payments is $75,000 for single head of households and $112,000 for married couples.

In other news, in recent weeks the Biden administration has been receiving pressure to issue a fourth stimulus payment. However, it is unlikely that Congress will approve more aid before the end of the year. Especially since official numbers are pointing to the fact that the economy is recovering.

Economic stimulus check: WHY DO THEY ASK FOR LESS BENEFITS?

The latest jobs report on November 4 showed that the number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits fell to a pandemic low last week. This is yet another sign that the job market is recovering from last year’s recession caused by the coronavirus. Unemployment assistance claims fell by 14,000 to 269,000 last week.

Since it peaked at 900,000 in early January, the number of weekly applications has fallen more or less continuously, gradually closing in on pre-pandemic levels of around 220,000 weekly. However many people are still hurting financially and are pushing for more aid from the Biden administration.

Overall, 2.1 million Americans received unemployment checks for the week of October 23, down from 7.1 million people from a year earlier when the economy was still reeling in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The four-week average, ignoring various ups and downs, fell below 285,000. This number is the lowest on record since the start of the pandemic. The job market has been rebounding since the pandemic sank the US economy in the spring of 2020.

In March and April of 2020, employers cut more than 22 million jobs when governments ordered lockdowns and both consumers and workers stayed home as part of the emergency health measures. The US economy has already recovered 17 million of the jobs lost during the pandemic.

Economists believe employers added 400,000 jobs in October, more than double the number added in September. Even so, the United States has five million fewer jobs than in February 2020. The figures seem to indicate an improvement, but some people believe that a fourth Covid relief check is still needed. Filed Under: Economic stimulus check

Economic stimulus check: WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE BIDEN AGENDA?

Amid requests for a fourth stimulus check, the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday was set to debate, and vote on, a revised version of Biden’s spending plan, now worth $1.85 trillion. In addition to the proposed $1.85 trillion, he also wants to spend $ 1 trillion infrastructure. This comes at a time when Democrats are eager to show voters that they can respond to their needs.

With a series of last-minute adjustments, Democrats added important changes to what has become a sprawling 2,135-page package. They came up with a new paid family leave program, immigrant work permits, and changes to state and local tax exemptions.

Both the overall cost and the revenue to pay for it are expected to grow. A new assessment by the White House on Thursday said that revenue from corporate and wealth taxes as well as other fees is estimated to generate $2.1 trillion over 10 years, according to a summary obtained by The Associated Press. That’s up from the previous 1.9 trillion estimates.

A senior administration official said Thursday that the proposal in the lower house will be fully funded, reiterating a frequent refrain from Biden. The official asked to remain anonymous as they commented on the new calculations. Voting is possible later Thursday, with Democrats keen to advance the president’s priority package after lengthy discussions on Capitol Hill. This wrangling has partly been blamed for the party’s poor election results this week. “Send it to my office!” Biden implored at the White House Wednesday.

Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer announced that votes were possible on Biden’s social services law but that the climate change programs and infrastructure package had stalled in deliberations. Aides and lawmakers maintain that the final vote could happen on Friday.

After months of negotiations, Democrats are desperate for progress on Biden’s proposals following bleak election results in Virginia, a warning that their control of Congress is in jeopardy heading into next year’s midterm elections. Filed Under: Economic stimulus check
