HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — The Connecticut Department of Revenue Services hosted a free webinar on Thursday, July 7 to help parents apply for the state’s child tax rebate ahead of the July 31 application deadline.

The Department of Revenue Services provided information about eligibility and answered frequently asked questions during the webinar, which was presented in English at 10 a.m., followed by a presentation in Spanish at 11 a.m.

The 2022 Connecticut Child Tax Rebate provides taxpayers with a state tax rebate of up to $250 per child for up to three children. Any Connecticut resident who claimed at least one dependent child 18 years old or younger on their 2021 federal income tax return may be eligible.
