Don't know if I can post another website address but you can check your refund status on irs.gov Just fill in a little info and it gives you the expected mailing date for your credit to come in the mail. I think they are all expected to be mailed by Aug. 15th ...Yippie.......

Rats, it gives a date but then say "IF you qualify for it". I'm not sure if we qualify or not. I was hoping it would tell me. Guess I'll just have to wait and see if a check shows up in the mail.

I'm not a 100% sure but I think to qualify you need to have a qualifying child/children for the deduction to begin w/ and had to have taken the deduction last year. Do you remember taking the child tax credit? Not sure about income brackets or how that works. Guess I could investigate further. HTH

If you go to the IRS site and click on Where's my Advance Child Tax Credit it will take you to another page and if you scroll 1/2 down there is a link Go Get My Advance Child Tax Credit Status. Click on that enter your social securtiy #, how you filed (single, married, etc..) and how many TOTAL (adult and children) you claimed it will tell you if you are getting the advance and when it will be mailed.

Looks like it's only for low income families. At least that's what I'm reading. $12,000-20,000. http://www.cbpp.org/6-11-03tax.htm I may be reading it wrong. Hope this helps!

Families making between $10,500 and $150,000 will qualify for the advance.

The House legislation also would extend the child tax credit to many higher-income married families, by raising the income level at which the credit begins to phase down for married families from $110,000 to $150,000. This would make married families in the $110,000-$150,000 range, who now receive a partial child tax credit, eligible for a full credit. In addition, it would extend a partial tax credit to many families in the $150,000-$200,000 range or, in the case of families with more than two children, to some families with incomes exceeding $200,000. (The income level at which a family’s credit entirely phases out depends on the number of children in the family; see table at the bottom of page 2.) The extension of the credit to these higher-income families would cost $20.4 billion through 2010. (The Senate child tax credit bill has a similar provision, but it costs only $4.8 billion because it would not start to phase in until 2008 and would take full effect in 2010.)

I think you will find that this is actually not for low income families, and actually for middle class families. The information I have seen is it looks to me like you need to have filed with an AGI of more than 26,000 a year and make no more than 110,000. a year.
