I received my tax refund yesterday, but it didn't come with the Recovery Rebate Credit that I missed earlier this year. Should I expect that in the coming weeks?

I missed some Recovery Rebate Credit this year. I received my refund yesterday, but it didn't come with the Recovery Rebate Credit. Should I expect that in the coming weeks, or should I take additional steps to claim the credits?

Go to this IRS website for federal tax refund FAQ's - https://www.irs.gov/refunds/tax-season-refund-frequently-asked-questions

 

Why is my refund different than the amount on the tax return I filed? 

All or part of your refund may have been used (offset) to pay off past-due federal tax, state income tax, state unemployment compensation debts, child support, spousal support, or other federal nontax debts, such as student loans. To find out if you may have an offset or if you have questions about an offset, contact the agency to which you owe the debt.

We also may have changed your refund amount because we made changes to your tax return. This may include corrections to any incorrect Recovery Rebate Credit amount. You’ll get a notice explaining the changes. Where’s My Refund? will reflect the reasons for the refund offset when it relates to a change in your tax return.

Tax Topic 203, Refund Offsets for Unpaid Child Support, Certain Federal and State Debts, and Unemplo... has more information about refund offsets.

If the missing money was from the THIRD  stimulus payment then that comes separately as part of the PLUS UP function by the IRS.
