You can e-file your 2020 amended federal tax return. Please see FAQ How to amend a tax return for instructions.

 

 

Please first make sure your dependents are entered correctly in the "My Info" section on your amended return. 

 

 

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.

 

To be eligible for the 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 )

I tried those instructions, but I think it's for if you haven't filed yet.  I have already filed and received my return, so it won't let me do those instructions.

Yes, if you have already filed a return, you need to do an amended return. Follow these steps:

 

Once your original return is accepted and the finances are settled, you can file an amended return.
