Monthly Child Tax Credits Begin To Go Out To Parents

Summary from AllSides News Team

On Thursday, about 39 million American families will start to receive monthly tax credit payments ranging from $2,000 to $3,000 per child.  The payments will continue for six months, and are part of the Biden administration's $1.9 trillion economic aid package.

Critics say the child tax credit payments are a disincentive to work and an expansion of the welfare state.  Proponents say the checks are needed by working families and will help prevent child poverty.
