I didn't received a 2nd stimulus check and expected to claim it on my taxes, but TurboTax gives me no chance to provide that info. Helped my Ex and it asked her.

Please be aware, the questions will not come up if your adjusted gross income (AGI) is too high. 

 

To be eligible for the Recovery Rebate Credit you need to be a U.S. citizen or U.S. resident alien in 2020 and have a Social Security number that is valid for employment.

 

You cannot be claimed as a dependent by someone else to be eligible. 

 

Your credit amount will be reduced if your 2020 adjusted gross income (AGI) is more than: 

  • $150,000 if married and filing a joint return or filing as a qualifying widow or widower
  • $112,500 if filing as head of household or
  • $75,000 for eligible individuals filing as a single or as married filing separately.  

Your payment will be reduced by 5% of the amount by which your AGI exceeds the applicable threshold above. (IRS FAQ Recovery Rebate Credit )

 

 

To claim the credit in TurboTax, please follow these steps:

  1. Log into TurboTax.
  2. After entering all your information click "Federal Review" at the top of your screen (or click "Search" and type "Stimulus" and follow the jump to link). 
  3. On the screen "Let's make sure you got the right stimulus amount" click "Continue".
  4. You will be asked about the amounts of first round and second round stimulus payments you received.  If you did not receive a payment enter "0".
  5. TurboTax will then calculate the amount of stimulus payment remaining that you are still entitled to get. 
  6. Any stimulus amount remaining due to you will show as a credit on line 30 of the 1040.

According to online stimulus calculators I have found, with my AGI I would still get a small amount once I factor in that I claimed 3 kids in 2019. However, I only claimed 2 kids in 2020 and based on the calculators, it shows $0 if I only claim 2 kids. I thought stimulus amount was based on 2019, not 2020?

 

When I try to go to the Stimulus section from search, TT just takes me to "Lets Review" and says nothing about stimulus at all.

No, the Recovery Rebate Credit is based on your 2020 tax situation.
