The enhanced child tax credit is beginning July 15.
The enhanced payouts are part of the recently passed COVID relief bill. The program covers about 88-percent of the country’s children and will see a payment of up to $300.
To reach low-income households that don't typically file taxes, the agency is setting up a portal to allow them to submit their information.
Families are eligible for tax credits, paid monthly, that add up to $3,600 per child.
