Child Tax Credit: Utah Families to Receive $1,000 for Kids Under 4 in 2024
Starting in January 2024, families in Utah will be eligible for a $1,000 child tax credit,
Following the enactment of the state's inaugural child tax credit in March.
Utah is one of three states that introduced new Child Tax Credits in 2023.
Utah's credit is nonrefundable, meaning it can reduce your tax liability to zero but not result in a negative balance.
Refundable credits, on the other hand, can reduce your tax liability to zero and even provide a refund.
Governor Spencer Cox (R-UT) signed this Child Tax Credit into law on March 22, with the new law set to apply to taxable years beginning on or after January 1.
In Utah, families can claim $1,000 per child aged 1 to 3. To qualify, those filing as "married filing separately" must earn $27,000 or
less, "single filing" filers must earn $43,000 or less, and those filing as "married filing jointly" must earn $54,000 or less.
