A family who has two children can get another stimulus package worth up to $8,000 in the upcoming year, 2022.

This stimulus payment comes under the child and dependent tax credit relief package


  If the families have kids under the age of 13 and their income is under  $125,000 they can claim their payment in 2022.

The parents will have to directly apply for the check while you file your tax return.

There should be a joint return of tax payments.

This can be really helpful for the families to help their kids financially in these tough pandemic times.

This would include expenses like transportation, housekeepers, babysitters, day camps, daycare, and school programs.

It will also include strike benefits and disability expenses.

Earlier, the limit to which you could get Stimulus for two children reached up to $6,000.

But thankfully, under the American Rescue Act, this amount has been increased.

This upcoming year, parents would be eligible for tax credits varying from $4000 to  $8,000 for one child and $16,000 for two.

Families with an adjusted gross income (AGI) of $125,000 or less would be eligible for the maximum stimulus payments, this line increased from $15,000.
