Trouble Anticipated on Tax Returns Due to Advanced Child Tax Credit

To combat anticipated complications and questions on how to report the ACTC on tax returns, the IRS announced on December 21, 2021, that a letter would be sent to ACTC recipients starting in December and to recipients of the third round of the Economic Impact Payments at the end of January. 

It is the IRS’s hope that by providing Letter 6419 for ACTC recipients and Letter 6475 for Third Economic Impact Payment recipients, it will be able to decrease the number of calls received, general confusion by taxpayers, and the number of manual reviews by IRS that need to occur, as was the case during Fiscal Year 2021.
