The IRS has announced that the Child Tax Credit letters (Letter 6419) issued in January may be incorrect. If you received your letter and agree with the amounts, no further action is necessary. However, if you received your letter and disagree with the IRS or did not receive your letter but received advanced CTC payments, you must create an online account with the IRS to confirm the amount that you received.
It’s important that we get this amount correct, because if the IRS disagrees with the return, it will cause a long, miserable delay.
