Generally, nothing. If you are eligible to receive advance Child Tax Credit payments based on your 2020 or 2019 tax return, you should receive those payments automatically without needing to take any additional action.
However, if you have not filed your 2020 or 2019 tax return, the IRS recommends that you file your tax returns electronically and provide your account information to begin receiving payments by direct deposit.
