The stimulus check is an advance on a credit you can receive on your 2020 tax return.  If something went wrong or you did not get the stimulus check in 2020, you can get it when you file your 2020 return in early 2021

The Recovery Rebate Credit will be found in the FEDERAL REVIEW section. ( you should see "Let's make sure you got the right stimulus amount”)  If you are eligible it will end up on line 30 of your 2020 Form 1040.

 

Make sure that you enter ALL of the stimulus money received for the 1st ad 2nd stimulus for yourself, your spouse and your children.

TurboTax will ask for the amounts that you received for the Recovery Rebate Credit. You can check the amounts at  Get My Payment.

 

The program will ensure that the correct amounts are received. 

 

See Recovery Rebate Credit for more information.
