Advance CTC Letters

The IRS is sending out Letter 6419 to taxpayers who received advance child tax credit payments in 2021. These letters include the amount of advance child tax credit payments taxpayers received and the number of qualifying children used to calculate the advance payments. This information must be accurately reported on your 2021 tax return. Therefore, it is essential that you provide this letter to us with your tax documentation. Any discrepancies in the information reported to the IRS will delay the processing of you return.
