Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont has announced that families in the state can start applying to receive a state tax rebate of up to 250 dollars per child for a maximum of three children from June 1.
The measure is a part of the recently enacted 2022 Connecticut Child Tax Rebate that he signed into law in May earlier this year.
Any Connecticut resident who claimed at least one dependent child under the age of 18 on their 2021 federal income tax return might be eligible for the rebate.
“In addition to making groundbreaking investments in childcare, crime prevention, environmental protection, and caring for our most vulnerable, the budget that we just enacted provides relief specifically targeted for lower and middle-income families with children,” Governor Lamont stated in an official press release.
“The application period for this rebate will take place over the next several weeks, with the rebates going out in late August, just in time for the start of the next school year.
“I strongly urge all eligible families in Connecticut to submit an application so that the rebate can be sent to you with no delays.”
