Everyone in the United States is eligible to receive this tax credit if you have at least one child under the age of 18. However, you MUST request this payment through the IRS. Reports are also indicating that some people who have previously requested this payment may be having issues receiving it. This could be related to a problem with your direct deposit setup.
