I made a mistake on my taxes. I need to amend and claim my stimulus money I didn’t get. How do I do that?

I know how to get to the page to amend, but I can’t get to the information about the stimulus. I tried using the search bar only questions came up, no link.
You entered stimulus in lower case and did not get a Jump to stimulus in the Search box?
If the Recovery Rebate Credit was included in the initial return, even if the amount was incorrect, no amended return is necessary. The IRS has promised to automatically correct Recovery Rebate Credit errors if it was initially included in the return.
If you do need to amend, then follow these steps only after the amended return is started:
- Go to the search box and enter stimulus. Click the Jump to link as @DoninGA stated.
- Answer Yes.
- At the next screen, Let's double-check the amount you received, answer No to edit the first-round and second-round amounts.
- If no stimulus amount was received, enter 0. An amount must be entered in each box. When finished, click Continue.
Continue answering the initial questions. This will lead you back into your return where you can navigate to what needs adjustment.
