The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 includes the Child Tax Credit. This program will start advance payments in July 2021 and end on December 31, 2021, for taxpayers who have qualifying dependents. This year, you can claim up to $3,600 for each qualifying child, which is an increase that will only apply to the 2021 tax year as long as you can meet all the qualifications.
Payday loans are an essential way to get quick cash when you experience an emergency expense such as a medical bill, auto repair, or other critical expenses that you must pay right away. Payday loans may or may not affect your credit scores.
Generally, if you have a bad score, you will pay higher interest rates when you borrow. For example, if you get a new car, bad credit history often impacts other things like your auto insurance. And, in some cases, your bad credit may stop you from getting a job as many employers now do credit checks before they hire someone.
Your credit score may decrease if your credit report has any suspicious activity or you are a victim of identity theft. Make sure to report any suspicious activity to your banks, lenders, and credit bureaus.
One of the biggest worries that everyone has in their lives is money. Worrying about bank account balance when buying groceries, shuffling around bills, avoiding debt collection calls - these are all real problems that millions of Americans face everyday and feel helpless about.
