Unfortunately, when I get to the step "Scroll to the bottom of this screen and click "Let's keep going"", I automatically get the screen that says, "Let's check your federal return and make sure it's good to go." Then it goes thru the checking process and says everything is fine.
Originally, I responded that I did not receive a check. Then I remembered I did receive a small portion of the stimulus in April. So I was going to go back and correct my answer. If there's no tax on it and I'm not eligible for more funds, perhaps it doesn't matter if I correct it.
You do have to enter it. Or it might give it to you again if you qualify.
If you are trying to trigger it, you can go to Other Situations, answer any questions and click Done. The next automatic selection is Federal Review and it will ask about payments received.
The Recovery rebate credit is on 1040 line 30. It either adds to your refund or reduced a tax due.
