Did Not Receive Advance Child Tax Credit

Post by Rainier »

Is anybody else expecting but did not receive the advance child tax credit?

I believe we are eligible and did not turn them off. On the IRS portal it says "Pending. You will not receive advance payments at this time."

I can't figure out why. I filed my 2020 return and already received our refund. We are married filing joint, two kids age 10/11 with AGI about $195k. All the calculators I use say we should be getting $333 per month now and another $2,000 when we file.

Did you get your 2020 refund direct deposited or mailed, i.e. do they have your account information to make a direct deposit?

A quick google search shows you aren't the only one getting that message.

Direct deposit. The IRS website is showing the correct bank account.

Did you not qualify under 2019 AGI? When did you file your 2020 return? There is a chance that the IRS is just behind on updating your info.

I also did not receive mine, and definitely should (1 child, household income under $100K). We also didn't receive our stimulus checks until March 2020, so I'm wondering if we're just going to have to wait a long time for this to get sorted out too.

I qualify under 2019 and 2020 AGI. I think we filed in March, electronically, and got a speedy refund. I also received the 1st and 2nd stimulus as expected and on time, but did not qualify for anything on the 3rd.
