HARTFORD, Conn. — Connecticut families can soon apply to get a state tax rebate for their children.
Beginning June 1, families can apply to receive a state tax rebate of up to $250 per child under the age of 18, a maximum of three children.
This tax rebate comes after the 2022 Connecticut Child Tax Rebate was enacted by Gov. Ned Lamont earlier this month.
These are the income guidelines to get the maximum of $250 per child:
- Single or married filing separately -- $100,000 or less
- Head of household -- $169,000 or less
- Married filing jointly -- $200,000 or less
Those with higher incomes may be eligible for a reduced rebate based on income.
“In addition to making groundbreaking investments in childcare, crime prevention, environmental protection, and caring for our most vulnerable, the budget that we just enacted provides relief specifically targeted for lower and middle-income families with children,” Lamont said.
Applications open on June 1 and will close on July 31. Any resident who claimed at least one dependent under the age of 18 on their 2021 federal income tax return may be eligible. Qualified recipients will receive the funds beginning in late August.
