The IRS began mailing Letter 6419 copies in December and will continue throughout January. The tax season started on Monday, Jan. 24, with the IRS accepting and processing tax returns for the first time.

Parents Must Keep Their Letter 6419

According to ABC 13, this year, parents should be on the lookout for an IRS document known as letter 6419. The letter is about the 2021 advance child tax credit, which was distributed between July and December.

Families might get up to $300 for each child aged five to seventeen and $250 for those aged six to seventeen. If parents did not get one or more child tax credit payments in 2021, they should contact the IRS at 800-908-4184.

Why You Need to Keep Your Letter 6419 

Make sure the information is still correct by double-checking it. For example, if you had a child since your last tax return, the IRS would not have considered that when calculating how much money you’re entitled to. As a result, when you file your tax return, you’ll need to make sure your information is up to current, cnet.com wrote. 

Keep an eye on your mailbox if you haven’t received a letter yet, as the IRS is still working on getting them out. There may be a problem if you haven’t received a notice by the time you’re ready to file your taxes. It takes some time and patience to create an account on the IRS website. Still, once you do, you’ll have access to all of the necessary information for the child tax credit and other valuable IRS information for completing your taxes. Several factors influence the amount of child tax credit money you receive with your tax refund. As an example, if you chose not to receive monthly payments last year, you will receive more than if you received every check.
