IRS Reminds Missourians About Possible Tax Credits

(Washington D.C.) The IRS is sending letters to more than nine-million people, including some Missourians, who qualified for key tax credits but did not claim them.

The letters are in response to the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit, Child Tax Credit, Earned Income Tax Credit and other tax credits, depending on their personal and family situation.

These and other tax benefits were expanded under last year’s American Rescue Plan Act and other recent laws.

The only way to get the benefits is to file a 2021 tax return.

To help people claim these credits, Free File, will remain open on the IRS’s website until November 17.

The program enables people whose incomes are 73-thousand-dollars or less to file a return online for free.
