I should have received the first ever stimulus that had gone out and I didn’t but I am receiving the ones now? Where is my first one?

Check the IRS  Get My Payment portal to see if there is any information about your first stimulus payment. You may have to file a tax return to get your first stimulus payment which is called the Recovery Rebate Credit.

 

Stimulus payments were advances on the Recovery Rebate Credit and are not taxable to you. 

 

If you didn't receive the full amount for your first or second-round stimulus payments, we'll help you claim the Recovery Rebate Credit when you file your taxes this year.

 

Here’s how:

  • Enter all of your federal return information as you would normally. During the Federal Review, we’ll check if you meet eligibility requirements for the stimulus payment. If you meet the requirements, we'll ask a few questions about any payments you've already received and then let you know if the Recovery Rebate Credit applies.
    • If you need to make any changes to your stimulus credit responses, search for stimulus and select the jump-to link at the top of the search results to return back to the section. Enter your updated info and Continue.

It’s important that you enter the correct amount of each stimulus payment you received. The first stimulus payments were made between April and September of last year, while the second round of payments were delivered during January and February. You can find the exact amount,

  • On your IRS letter-Notice 1444 and/or 1444-B which were mailed to you with the headline, “Your Economic Impact Payment Has Arrived” and were signed by the president. Or,
  • By visiting IRS.Gov and creating or accessing your account. Or,
  • In your bank statements. You might be able to search your online statements for deposits made by the IRS or US Treasury.

I received the $1200 stimulus payment. I have not received not gotten the $600 stimulus payment. How do  I amend my 2020 return to recover this money. I contacted Bank of America and they confirmed that this was not deposited into my account. Thanks.

If you used TurboTax Online, simply log in to your account and select “Amend a return that was filed and accepted.” If you used our CD/download product, sign back into your return and select “Amend a filed return.” You must file a separate Form 1040X for each tax return you are amending.

 

Remember that you need to make sure that the IRS has accepted the return that you already submitted. If you have already received that confirmation, you can go ahead and do this immediately. It is rather simple, actually. TurboTax will transfer all information from original return and make inquiries as to why you are amending (what's changed) and be sure to follow all of the steps.
