- Families that didn’t receive monthly payments have one last chance.
- They could receive an economic stimulus check at the end of the year.
- This is for people who sign up for a child tax credit plan with the IRS.
Good news! Families will receive a new check before the year ends, as IRS authorities report that they will send an economic stimulus check of up to $1,800 in December for each minor child, if parents enroll in the child tax credit program, according to La Noticia.
This payment would be sent at the end of December. One of the most important requirements is that the beneficiaries have to have enrolled in the program by November 15. So that only gives you about four more days. That means anyone who wishes to take advantage of this program should hurry to enroll, since this will be the last payment that families will receive for the remainder of the year.
WHAT WILL FAMILIES RECEIVE AS A CHRISTMAS ‘GIFT’?
This will give people who are eligible, but didn’t have the opportunity to receive the monthly payments, a chance to do so in the future. Just go to the IRS website in order to find out what steps you need to take. And parents should be aware that the amount most taxpayers receive will be calculated automatically by the IRS based on their 2020 tax returns.
A number of families didn’t receive their benefits because their incomes were low enough that they weren’t required to file income taxes. But if they manage to register with the IRS, they will be in luck, as this could be a very different Christmas from last year when many struggled due to the pandemic.
WHEN AND HOW MUCH WILL PARENTS RECEIVE IN THEIR ECONOMIC STIMULUS CHECK?
And the good news is that if parents are able to meet all the requirements, they could get the entire amount they should have received this year and it will arrive in a single, lump-sum payment. The date for those payments to be sent out should be December 15. This could help many families cover their expenses and have a real Christmas this year.
An $1,800 check will be sent for each child under 6 and $1,500 for each child aged 6 to 17. Again, it is necessary to visit the IRS website and enter all the required information in order to avoid having problems with receiving the payment.
WHAT DOES THE GOVERNMENT SAY ABOUT THE MONEY IN THE ECONOMIC STIMULUS CHECK?
The official government statement regarding this payment reads as follows: “If you are eligible for the Child Tax Credit but did not sign up for advance monthly payments before the November 15 deadline, you can still claim the full credit of up to $3,600 per child when you file your taxes next year. ”
It should be remembered that payments were delivered every 30 days in the previous six months and about $300 was given for each child registered with the IRS. The registration is key to receiving any money. The child tax credit payments began in July and will end in December, according to information from the IRS.
WHAT SHOULD I DO TO RECEIVE THE FINANCIAL STIMULUS CHECK?
It is important to note that in the American Rescue Plan, approved in March, the tax credit, an advance payment for the 2021 tax returns of eligible taxpayers, was increased from $2,000 per child to $3,600 per child under 6, and $3,000 for children between 6 and 16 years old.
Given this, there are families that can receive Child Tax Credit payments of $300 per month for each minor who lives in their home. However, it is very important that when you file your 2021 return next year, you state the amount of monthly child tax credit payments you received this year.
DO ECONOMIC STIMULUS PAYMENTS REDUCE JOB APPLICATIONS IN THE UNITED STATES?
This type of aid was created to be delivered to the families that were affected by the crisis unleashed by the COVID pandemic around the world. Because businesses remained closed for months, many employees lost their jobs and the situation has just begun to improve this year. In the midst of all this, the vaccine became available, though many people have refused to get it.
Therefore, the latest report from the US government states that the number of people who applied for unemployment benefits in the United States fell last week to 267,000, the lowest level since the beginning of the pandemic, with the labor market continuing to recover from last year’s recession.
WHY ARE FEWER PEOPLE APPLYING FOR JOBS?
New unemployment applications fell by 4,000, the Labor Department said in its report Wednesday. The four-week average, which evens out the weekly ups and downs, fell by nearly 7,300 to 278,000, also the lowest level during the pandemic. Unemployment claims have been declining consistently since hitting 900,000 in early January and are gradually approaching pre-pandemic levels of around 220,000 a week.
New unemployment applications, which are indicative of layoffs, are now down for six consecutive weeks. There were 2.2 million people receiving traditional unemployment benefits in the week ending October 30. “Overall, the downward trend in applications continues and the level is approaching pre-pandemic levels,” wrote Rubeela Farooqi, US economics specialist for High Frequency Economics.

WHAT CAN COMPANIES DO TO RETAIN EMPLOYEES?
“Companies facing labor shortages are more likely to retain than lay off workers.” The job market has been recovering for the past year and a half. In March and April 2020, companies cut more than 22 million jobs as governments ordered lockdowns and consumers and workers stayed home as a health precaution.
Since then, employers have added more than 18 million jobs – including 531,000 last month – as vaccinations and government assistance programs gave consumers the confidence and resources to resume spending. Now many businesses, trying to keep up with growing demand, complain they can’t fill vacancies – a near-record 10.4 million in August. But the economy is still 4 million jobs below the February 2020 level. Filed Under: Economic stimulus check
HOW DOES JOE BIDEN’S AGENDA BENEFIT YOU?
In an attempt to improve the situation in the United States after the pandemic and in addition to the delivery of checks and economic support, recently President Biden celebrated the approval of his 1 billion dollar infrastructure package, calling it a, “monumental step forward for the nation,” after Democrats resolved a months-long showdown in their own ranks to seal the deal.
“Finally, an infrastructure week,” said Biden with a smile at his press conference. “It makes me so happy to say it like this: infrastructure week.” The House approved the bill by 228 votes in favor and 206 against, drawing a cheer of relief from the Democratic caucus. It was backed by 13 Republicans, mostly moderates, while six members of the most left wing Democrats – including Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Cori Bush – rejected it.

WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH THE MONEY THAT WAS APPROVED?
With the passage of the bill, which would create large numbers of jobs and improve bandwidth, water supply and other public works, it now goes to the desk of a president whose approval ratings have fallen and whose party received an ugly surprise from the voters in the recent elections.
The Democratic candidate for governor of Virginia was defeated and the one from New Jersey won by a slim margin, despite the fact that both states are Democratic-leaning. Those setbacks made party leaders – moderates and progressives alike – impatient to produce a bill that will have a positive impact and to show they know how to govern. Filed Under: Economic stimulus check
WHY IS THE INFRASTRUCTURE PACKAGE SO IMPORTANT?
Democrats also cannot afford to project an image of disorganization a year before mid-term elections, which could lead Republicans to regaining control of Congress. Voters, “want us to deliver,” Biden said, and Friday’s vote, “showed that we can.” “We delivered on a great promise,” he added.
The infrastructure package is a historic investment that Biden compares in magnitude to the construction of the interstate highway system in the last century or the transcontinental railroad in the nineteenth. He said it is a, “roadmap for the reconstruction of the United States.” Filed Under: Economic stimulus check
WHAT PROGRAMS WILL BE STRENGTHENED?
The allusion to infrastructure week was a jab at his predecessor Donald Trump, whose administration repeatedly proclaimed that “infrastructure week” had started without anything happening. Simply unblocking the infrastructure bill for final approval in Congress was a burst of adrenaline for Democrats. However, despite the victory, they suffered a setback when they postponed a vote on a second, larger proposal, which will take place later this month.
That 10-year, $1.85 trillion initiative, which reinforces programs related to health, family and climate change, was postponed after moderates demanded that the United States Congressional Budget Office (CBO) make a cost projection on the initiative. The postponement dashed hopes that Biden would score a double victory with the approval of both projects on the same day. Filed Under: Economic stimulus check
