According to a report by The Washington Post, President Biden’s $1.9 trillion economic relief package provides approximately $3,000 per child to American families. Under the proposal, the IRS will provide for a credit of $3,600 per child under the age of six and $3,000 per child between the ages six to 17 over a year. The proposal increases the annual income of average Americans to more than $75,000, and for couples with joint income to more than $150,000. This will not only provide immense cash benefits to American families, but also help them cope with IRS problems by giving them enough bandwidth to pay off back debts. In this blog post, we discuss the impact of Biden’s Stimulus proposals on tax credits.

Boosting the Child Tax Credit

The pandemic has driven many people deeper into poverty, which is why many are failing to pay their taxes on time and creating significant tax problems for the future. The President plans to increase the child tax credit to $3,000 for children aged 6-17 and $3,600 for children under the age of six. Currently, American families can claim up to $2,000 per child under age 17. In order to provide benefits to low-income families, Biden plans to make the child tax credit fully refundable by distributing refund checks to the taxpayers, even if the refund credit exceeds the amount they owe to the IRS. To understand more about how you can get tax benefits from child tax credit, you can seek assistance from experienced tax attorneys who can assist you in getting a refund or resolve any IRS issues.

Higher Child and Dependent Care Credit

Currently, the child care tax credit is nonrefundable and goes up to $1,050 per child and $2,100 for two or more kids under age 13. The main aim of President Biden’s proposal is to revamp the credit so that families that pay childcare for kids under age 13 can get a credit of up to $4,000 for one kid or $8,000 for two or more children. This will put more money into the pockets of families. Also, families already making between $125,000 and $400,000 will be eligible to receive a partial credit.

Earned Income Tax Credit Tweaks

Biden also seeks a one-year expansion of the earned income tax credit that is meant for lower income workers. This is the only group of people who are not able to comply with the income tax rules. The President is planning to raise the maximum earned income tax credit for people with no child up to $1,500. Currently, this credit is close to $538 for taxpayers with no qualifying children. He is also planning to raise the income limit for the credit to approximately $21,000 from about $16,000. Finally, he wants to make the credit available to older workers, by eliminating the 65-year age cap. All these steps will significantly improve the financial conditions of taxpayers, enabling them to get significant IRS tax relief and fair solutions to any IRS issues.

Wrap Up

According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, America faces a high level of child poverty because it spends less on child benefits. Through these proposals, President Biden plans to change the tax code for people with low income or are below the poverty line.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
