The expanded child tax credit payments may last for one more year instead of five in the Democrats’ new proposed spending plan, reports CNBC.

Thousands of Americans have received monthly checks since July 2021 following passage of the American Rescue Plan. But policymakers are now deciding the future of the payments as part of the proposed reconciliation package, with some suggesting extending the benefit for just one year. Previously, the Biden administration proposed extending the enhanced credit through 2025.

Sen. Joe Manchin, the Democratic lawmaker who said he won’t support a $3.5 trillion social safety net bill, wants to see a more focused enhanced tax credit program. He has proposed limiting it to families with income of $60,000 and adding a work requirement – a prerequisite that would mean 37.4 million children across the U.S. missing out on the credit, according to the Niskanen Center.
