Can you help meI haven’t received no stimulus check or my refunds at all

The ONLY way to get the 1st, 2nd and/or 3rd stimulus payments is by filing tax returns for 2020 and 2021.  Have you filed tax returns for 2020 and 2021?  When?   Did the IRS process those returns?   Did you e-file or mail the returns?  If you filed by mail it will take a long time for the IRS to process the returns.   It is taking the IRS at least six months and often longer to process mailed tax returns.  Post back by clicking "Reply" and tell us what you have done so far so we can help.

There have been 3 Stimulus Payments so far……
EIP1 The first Stimulus payment was 1,200 for each spouse and 500 for each dependent under 17. Came out in spring of 2020.

 

EIP2 The second Stimulus was 600 per person and dependents under 17. The 2nd stimulus checks started going out at the very end of December 2020 and continued into January/Feb 2021.
The first 2 Stimulus payments went on your 2020 return even if you got the second one in Jan/Feb 2021.


EIP3 The 3rd Stimulus payment started going out in March 2021 and is for 1,400 for each person listed on your tax return, no age limit. The IRS used your 2020 (or 2019) return to send the checks out fast. If your 2021 return changes and you qualify for more you can claim the extra as the Recovery Rebate Credit on 1040 line 30. But line 30 is only if you didn't get the full amount or qualify for more. Not the amount you already got. The IRS also sent out letter 6475 to tell you how much they sent you . If you are married then each spouse should get a letter for half.


The Recovery Rebate Credit was new for last year 2020 and this year 2021. It asks you if you received the Stimulus payments and how much. Then 1040 line 30 is only if you didn't get the full amount or qualify for more.

 

Which ones didn't you get?  Double check your bank accounts.
