CLEVELAND (WJW) — If you haven’t received your September child tax credit payment yet, you’re not alone and the IRS says they are looking into it.

A statement on the IRS website says: “We are aware of instances where some individuals have not yet received their September payments, although they received payments in July and August. These individuals may not yet be able to receive a current status on the IRS Update Portal.  The IRS is currently looking into this situation, and we will share more information as soon as possible.”

According to the IRS, starting on Sept. 15 they sent out the third round of payments of about 35 million child tax credits totaling around $15 billion. 

Parents can choose to not receive the early payments here, or sign up here.

There is some talk in the U.S. House of Representatives of extending the advance child tax credit payments until 2025, with legislation currently being considered by the Ways and Means Committee.

But for now, the remaining payments this year fall mid-month, every month until December 2021 on Oct. 15, Nov. 15 and Dec. 15. The remaining money will come in one lump with tax refunds in 2021.
