Any Connecticut resident who claimed at least one dependent child under the age of 18 on their 2021 federal income tax return may be eligible.
To receive the maximum rebate of $250 per child (for up to three children), the following income guidelines must be met:
|Filer status||Income threshold|
|Single or married filing separately||$100,000 or less|
|Head of household||$169,000 or less|
|Married filing jointly||$200,000 or less|
Those who have higher income rates may be eligible to receive a reduced rebate based on their income.
Anyone who is interested in seeking a rebate must apply to the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services. The application period will open on June 1, 2022, and will close on July 31, 2022. This timeline will enable qualified recipients to receive funds beginning in late August.
Eligible families must apply with the Department of Revenue Services between June 1 and July 31 to receive the rebate of $250 per child for a maximum of three children. Single parents who earned less than $100,000 in 2021 and two parents whose income was less than $200,000 in 2021 qualify to receive the maximum rebate.
