Child Tax Credit Letter Errors

Child Tax Credit Letter Errors

Letter 6419 Errors

The IRS is urging people to use the information in their online taxpayer accounts for the most up-to-date amount of the Advance Child Tax Credit to include on their tax returns. Do not use numbers stated in the letters the IRS has sent or in the revamped Child Tax Credit site they recently unveiled. Letter 6419 may contain outdated information, especially for taxpayers who have moved or if their checks or direct deposit payments were undeliverable, or if they changed bank accounts.

The IRS said in a fact sheet that it posted Friday, January 28, “Starting Monday, January 31, find the Advance Child Tax Credit payment information you need to file your 2021 tax return in your online account”. “Until then, use the amount in Letter 6419 sent by mail. Don’t use the payment details in the Child Tax Credit Portal.”

Remember, your Haynie CPA needs your Child Tax Credit payment information for your 2021 tax return. Please login to your IRS account and then provide this information to us.
