New Jersey Legislature Approves 2022 Child Tax Credit Bill

The New Jersey Assembly voted Monday afternoon on a bill which would make the state child tax credit, which the Legislature approved in June, to be effective for 2022.

The new bill was necessary after Republican lawmakers pointed out that the original bill did not allow for the $500 a child credit to be claimed until filing taxes for the 2023 tax year, meaning it wouldn’t be available until mid 2024.

The new bill, which passed the Assembly 67-4 and the Senate last week, 29-6, now heads to Governor Murphy’s desk for his signature.

According to the bill, families making $30,000 or less per year, will receive $500 per child under the age of 6. The $500 amount will be reduced by $10 for every $1,000 of income that the taxpayer’s taxable income exceeds $30,000 until the annual income amount reaches $80,000, at which point a family will no longer be eligible.

The credit can be claimed when a taxpayer files their New Jersey annual tax return.

The credit is refundable, meaning that any excess credit beyond the taxpayer’s tax liability will be paid to the taxpayer in the form of a tax refund.

  1. As a hardworking member of the community, who works hard to make money instead of relying on government programs, and therefore makes more than 30,000 dollars a year, I protest this taking money from people like me (through taxation) to be given to those who are lazy and think they can just rely on my tax dollars.
