I applaud the work of @POTUS @VP & Congress to make Juneteenth a federal holiday. My hope is that Juneteenth isn’t just a day of rest but one of reflection, too. When we take time to lift our eyes from our work & to think about where our country has been & where we want it to go.

In recognizing Juneteenth, we mark the end of slavery but the continuance of our work. This is long overdue, exciting and important. I hope the creation of this federal holiday spurs us to reflect & recommit to action & progress ahead. twitter.com/POTUS/status/1…

The importance of CDFIs was one of the first subjects @VP raised with me this year, & it’s exactly the right place to focus our attention. Because the questions “Who can access credit & capital? And who can’t?” are at the root of many long-term structural problems in our economy. twitter.com/VP/status/1404…

Most families will AUTOMATICALLY receive the Child Tax Credit payments starting mid-July. The Non-Filer Tool was created to help those families who normally aren’t required to file an income tax return to register quickly for the expanded CTC from the #AmericanRescuePlan

The IRS encourages people to file a 2020 tax return to get all the benefits they’re entitled to under the law & qualify for: - Stimulus payments - 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit - Earned Income Tax Credit. - Child Tax Credit (expanded starting July 15) irs.gov/newsroom/recov…
The majority of these payments went to eligible individuals for whom the IRS previously did not have information to issue an stimulus payment but who recently filed a tax return or updated their information. The IRS will continue to make payments on a weekly basis.
Economic Impact Payment update: @IRSnews and @FiscalService announced today they have disbursed more than 2.3 million additional payments under the #AmericanRescuePlan in the past 2 weeks. Today’s announcement brings the total disbursed so far to more than 169 million payments!

Coming soon, IRS.gov/childtaxcredit… will have new online tools, including: - An eligibility tool to help families determine whether they qualify for the Child Tax Credit payments. - An Update Portal, where people can opt out of the advance payments and update their info.
If you haven't yet filed a 2020 or 2019 tax return, doing so ASAP can ensure your family receives the expanded Child Tax Credit payment starting in July. Filing soon will also ensure that the IRS has current banking information, as well as key details about qualifying children.
The @IRSnews has started sending letters to more than 36 million families who may be eligible to receive monthly Child Tax Credit payments starting in mid-July. Most families do not need to take any action to get their payment! More here: irs.gov/newsroom/irs-s…
