    @Karebare016 from what I’ve been seeing we basically missed July payment but then again they might add it to the August payment or might have to claim that months missing payment on 2021 taxes

    @Tate & @GoCowboys mine is the same. I filed an amended return, accepted 6/3. CTC was pending, no payments at this time. Yesterday I received a small refund, which I think is just the unemployment and not the EIC that I qualified for when they deducted the UI. However, I updated to Eligible for the Advance CTC! So now my question is will the IRS send that July payment? Or I just missed July and payments will begin in Aug?

    I got an update for my CTC it changed from pending to Yes and I will receive payments. No payment has been processed yet but it’s good enough for me.

    I need a number to call about the CTC!! My taxes were amended and I had to wait until that was completed. So that was completed as of today. Now I went of the CTC part and the status is still the same pending- you will not receiving any payments at this time. Like WTF?!?! Does anyone have a number I can call to talk to someone.

    Hi all, so when the portal was first out up it said I was not eligible. Then it changed to eligible and enrolled but says the check will be mailed… Even though all my other stuff has been dd and nothing has changed. My question is where it says processed payments it says nothing has been processed. Will it show there when a check is mailed or only if augusts payment is dd? This has me so confused! Thanks!

    The account that my ctc shows is closed. Hopefully they send a paper check soon.
    I’ve already updated my bank info, but that’s for next month

    I filed my 2020 return with Injured Spouse in February. My return shows as accepted on my transcripts. However, the IRS won’t send my refund (which shows due on my transcripts), never sent my 2nd or 3rd stimulus, and now I’m “Pending” on the CTC. The IRS owes me about $13,000 right now and it’s now climbing $1,000 per month (4 kids). I called the IRS and they told me it was processing and I needed to wait until August. Unreal.

    Pending. You will not receive advance payments at this time is what my id portal says. I just updated it with my banking info. Hopefully I will receive August payment on time, looks like if not I will have to wait until 2022 to file and get it is what the phone number I called said. Why me? My kids really need that money for summer and school clothes. This sucks.

    So does anyone know when they mailed the checks out for July 15th? This site isn’t very active. I heard they mailed them out this past Friday but not sure.

    Filed 2020 taxes married filed separate with two dependents listed, my return was processed and my refund was received in March of this year. All stimulus checks received. I have not amended but my status still shows “Eligibility- Pending. You will not received advanced payments at this time”. I have no idea why.

    Amended 2019 return in 2019 adding a child, and the system has never recognized that amendment outside of me receiving a second refund. I never received a stimulus for that child, and it’s not showing ctc for that child either.

    This is the number that was on the letter 1 (800) 908-4184. I called this number they were just answering general questions they don’t have access to your account and they really can’t tell you anything. I had the lady transfer me to someone that could look at my account and actually tell me what’s going on. So I was told because I amended my return I have to wait until it’s completed in order to get my coin.

    So I just got off the phone with the IRS and was told if I filed an amended return I would need to wait until after t is processed and completed in order to get my Unemployment and CTC payments. That’s why it’s showing pending. You will not receive payment at this time. Grrrrrhhhhhhh!!!!!! And they are taking so long to complete the amended returns it’s just ridiculous.

    #4492325 Reply
    Tate

    I’m on hold with them now because the number listed on the letter I got a month a go is just to answer simple questions and not to address or look in to you account to see what the issue is. So I was transferred so I can get some type of answer as to why mine says pending but I will not receive any payment. Like really I know for a fact I qualify but they are still reviewing to see if I qualify what the H is this. If I get an update I will post it

    Yes, mine says “Pending. You will not receive advance payments at this time” as well. I meet all requirements and my 2020 return has been processed. I got a letter say we qualify and I’m not sure what the IRS is doing. I need to speak with someone about this cause it’s frustrating at this point. I didn’t get an update or anything regarding payment.

    Online portal finally says the child tax credit will be deposited tomorrow in my bank account. Relief! Updated today. If deposited tomorrow, I’ll receive Friday. That’s just how my bank works. Will update!

    #4492168 Reply
    Mike

    Has anyone seen confirmed pending deposits? That will tell us a lot.

    Mine also changed today to payment processed July 8th and no deposit yet. They probably havent initiated the ach transfers yet otherwise netspend and others would have hit by now. I know mine hits 2 days early on everything so my best guesstimate is that they will initiate the transfers today/tonight and we may see it tomorrow but if not the 15th or 16th potentially if they don’t initiate the ach till Thursday.

    Just checked the tax credit online portal and says payment was sent on the 8th of July to my turbo card account but i haven’t received it. Got my unemployment refund on 7/9 on that same card. I will continue to update.

    Audited for EIC & CTC. Haven’t received our 2020 refund yet. 100% eligible, but instead of using our 2019 return, they are going by 2020 returns that are not finished processing. So our status for the CTC is: Pending. You will not receive advance payments at this time. There’s going to be a ton of eligible families who will not receive ACTC because the IRS is using 2020 returns that are on hold for various reasons. We will probably have to claim the CTC on our 2021 taxes.

    Lex, thanks for your post. That gives me hope that maybe my “pending” status is an error or just hasn’t updated and I will actually see a deposit on the 15th. Has anyone actually received their deposit yet?

    I have the “pending” message also when I check the portal. Today I called the number at the top of the letter I received about the fact that I know I am eligible but showing that message. The rep said the online system is off & DD payments aren’t scheduled until the 15th. He mentioned if my payment was not in my account by the 16th to call back out & they will research.

    From what I understand, you do not have to pay back the advance child credit unless you made more money this year then what your annual gross was for the tax year 2020 or if you remove a child that you carried from previous taxes. On the other hand You get half now of your credit and the other half next year. I know I’m not unrolling give me my money. Tomorrow anit promise.

    Your husband will have to either unenroll they aren’t updating the portal yet to add and remove children I think till maybe next month if he doesn’t want to unenroll he will get for her up untill he can remove her then at tax time you’ll just have to pay back what you received for her you may get 2 or 3 checks for her untill u can remove her so if it’s not a big deal to pay it back then I wouldn’t worry

    I’m lost on this like everyone else. i don’t understand this message:
    Pending. You will not receive advance payments at this time.
    I received all other stimulus payments and have 2 sons that I qualify for the child tax credit for in past years. I received the initial letter that i was eligible and now I don’t know what the portal is all about. It’s almost like they should have just kept doing that they were doing because this is now causing confusion. Am I getting it or not? WOW

    I checked the portal, it just says eligible to receive and it has my direct deposit. The payment isn’t processed yet though, that box is empty. I though they said it was going to be sent on the 15th, didn’t know it was going to be sent earlier.

    I spoke to IRS regarding Advance child tax credit 2 days ago. Advised it would be deposited today 7/8. Nothing pending or on transcripts yet. On IRS advance tool it says pending you do not qualify at this time.

    I hope this helps someone. Filed simple 1040 on 2/12, no refund yet. States “Still being processed”. I checked the ACTC portal today to make sure I was in line for my first payment 7/15. That portal states, “Pending, you will NOT receive payments”. I am eligible. I got through to a live agent and they explained these two are tethered together. Since I was selected for random 1040 review, they will hold the ACTC. No problem since my daughter and I live in a van. Take your time.

    I’ve read numerous comments this morning where people have the portal saying it’s gonna be mailed but they called and the Irs told them that many portals are not updated yet t show direct deposit but they are in fact getting a it sent direct. deposited and most are saying today and a couple said said for July 12th and 15th. My portal also say mailed as I have got all my tax and stimulus’s deposited. I haven’t called yet but I’m hoping mine isn’t updated as well. Who knows

    Anyone else having trouble?? Everytime I log into the advance child tax credit portal to check my payment status and try to add/update my info, it gives me the message “Welcome Taxpayer” instead of having my name at the top, and then below it I have the message “ Advance Child Tax Credit Payments Is Unavailable at This Time.
    We’re unable to retrieve your information due to a service error. Check back later.” I have checked over and over again for two weeks!

    Does anyone know how the IRS will handle accounts for the monthly payments where fees were taking out of our refund? Santa Barbara and TurboTax to be exact,

    Did you read at all before you posted… Ugh. Check the portal to what it says there is a very high likely hood it will be mailed to the address on file until you update your direct deposit. assuming they don’t want to repeat the last issues. This has been the case of multiple people here that checked.

    My status also stays “pending, you will not receive payments at this time.”” Definitely eligible… have not yet received 2020 refund. Not getting these payments will hurt us financially even more. Seems like those already waiting on refunds will also have to wait for this.

    Mine says it’s “pending” and “you will not receive advance payments at this time blah blah blah…” I filed IS electronically with my tax return in mid-February and it’s still being processed. I even received a letter in the mail from the IRS a month or so ago and it said that I was eligible for the advance CTC. It will be interesting to see what happens.

    Good thing I checked the website. Apparently ctc payment was going to be or supposed to be automatically sent direct deposit to the same account used for stimulus and refund….well that is not the case. Website shows no direct deposit on file. Being mailed a check. Of course I changed to direct deposit. But I was like wth. They said we didn’t have to do anything if info on file. Craziness

    Went to check the portal just to make sure it was all correct given issues with the 2nd stimulus. And sure enough they had it marked as being MAILED to address in file even though we have used direct deposit for every other time. I’m so fucking fed up with this incompetent government bullshit. We were told if we filed our taxes we didn’t have to do anything unless we want to opt out. Well now the check will be sent by mail. So we’ll probably never see it.

    FYI-I looked up the info for our CTC payments, and it was being mailed. And yes our refund and stimulus was DD, but 3rd party. I had to update the info, and says Aug payment will be DD!

    IF 3rd party…CHECK, because you may get a paper check instead!
