Crist: Child Tax Credit Delivered $25.1 Million in Tax Cuts to FL-13 Families in August

St. Petersburg, FL, September 15, 2021

Congressman Charlie Crist (D-FL) released a new report from the Joint Economic Committee today estimating that 98,000 Child Tax Credit monthly tax cut payments were sent to families in Florida's 13th Congressional District in August. This represents a total of $25,100,000 in tax cuts right into the pockets of Pinellas families.

Statewide, 2,296,000 monthly tax cut payments went to families in August for a total of $933.5 million. The average payment was $407.

Nationwide, the Joint Economic Committee estimates the Child Tax Credit tax cuts are pumping $19.3 billion into local economies each month, supporting local jobs and businesses.

This historic tax cut is putting more of Pinellas families’ own money back in their pockets so they can pay for child care or put gas in the car to get work, put food on the table, cover school expenses, spend money at our local businesses, and continue to grow our local economy while building better lives for their families. Stronger families, stronger Florida!" said Crist.
