The California Attorney General Rob Bonta warned today that it is illegal for California creditors, debt collectors, and financial institutions to take Child Tax Credit payments from California families.
According to the Attorney General, eligible families will receive $300 a month for young children and $250 per month for families with children between the ages of 6 and 17. The IRS will provide the credit as a monthly payment.
“The pandemic has been tough on families across California,” said Bonta. “The Child Tax Credit payments should be a bright spot for our families, putting money in their pockets as the country begins our recovery. No parent should go to bed worried that these payments will be seized by some debt collector.”
The new tax credit is part of President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, which is to provide $1.9 trillion in economic aid.
