Without a January child tax credit payment, Jen Cousins will have to wait a few extra months to replace the brakes on her minivan, the only car her family of six owns.Cousins, 44, a stay-at-home mom in Orlando, Florida, has been receiving the full credit for each of her four children ages six, eight, twelve and thirteen for the past six months.

Jan 23, 2022 | USA Today3 reasons to file your taxes early this year
The IRS recently announced that the 2022 tax season will open on Jan. 24. That's an improvement from last year, when the IRS didn't begin accepting tax returns until February.Of course, filers still have until mid-April to submit their 2021 returns without penalty. But here's why it could benefit you to file your taxes earlier in the season.Most people who file a tax return get a refund every year. This year, however, that could change. That's because a lot of households received money in advance from the boosted Child Tax Credit, half of which was paid out in monthly installments between July and December of 2021.Either way, if you think you're due money, you should submit your tax return as soon as possible to avoid having your refund held up. This especially holds true this year, because the IRS has a lingering backlog from 2021.

Jan 22, 2022 | USA TodayWant to retire early? 3 things you should be doing in your 20s and 30s
A lot of people dream of retiring early, whether it's so that they can travel, pursue hobbies, or simply live life on their own terms. If your goal is to retire early, it'll take a commitment from a young age. And if you make these moves during your 20s and 30s, you'll put yourself in a stronger position to manage a workforce exit on your preferred timeline.It's easy to go overboard on spending when you first start working and begin enjoying the benefits of a steady paycheck. But if you want to retire early, you'll really need to get into the habit of living below your means and not spending down your entire paycheck month after month.In fact, a good bet is to keep your largest monthly expenses, like housing and transportation, as affordable as possible. That means buying a smaller home even if you can swing the mortgage a larger one might require, and driving a basic car instead of a higher-end model. The less you spend on living costs, the more money you'll be able to allocate toward your long-term goals.
