The Biden Administration has reviewed and supports the proposal, according to the Washington Post who first reported the plan. The legistive proposal, reviewed by Axios, will be revealed Monday along with other Ways and Means provisions.

  • The IRS would begin depositing payments into bank accounts July 1.
  • The payments would come in monthly installments.
  • Qualifying household incomes would be based on the previous year with lower payouts for individuals making $75,000 for individuals and $150,000 for those filing jointly.
  • Eligible households with children 17 to 6 could receive payments of $3,000 for each child and $3,600 for children under 6.

What they’re saying: “The pandemic is driving families deeper and deeper into poverty, and it’s devastating, Rep. Ritchie Neal (D-Mass.), chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, said in a statement.

  • “We are making the Child Tax Credit more generous, more accessible, and by paying it out monthly, this money is going to be the difference in a roof over someone’s head or food on their table,” he said.
