1. Child Tax Credit: Update income on IRS online portal; Spanish version of portal coming soon


On Monday, Nov. 1, the IRS will launch a new feature allowing any family receiving monthly Child Tax Credit payments to update their income using the Child Tax Credit Update Portal (CTC UP). The new income feature can help families make sure they are getting the right amount of advance Child Tax Credit payments during 2021. Urge your clients to enter any significant income changes by midnight on Nov. 1 for the changes to be reflected in their November payment, scheduled for Nov. 15. If a family is unable to make the changes on Nov. 1, enter them by Nov. 29 so they are reflected in the December payment. A Spanish-language version of the CTC UP will launch in late November. This article is also available in Spanish and Simplified Chinese.

5.​ ​ Partnering to protect taxpayers’ information


Combatting today’s cybercriminals takes all of us working together. The IRS works with state tax agencies and the tax industry to fight these 21st century identity thieves. And while we’re making progress, there’s more work to be done. Protecting taxpayer data is the law and good business. Visit the Protect Your Clients; Protect Yourself webpage on IRS.gov for tips and resources about keeping your clients’ tax information secure.
