recovery rebate credit and filing 1040x

I forgot to claim my EIP for $1200 on my 2020 taxes, so i need to file 1040X amended tax return,  what do i need to include when i file 1040X? Do I need to include a copy of my 2020 tax return that i originally filed? Also my EIP was sent out as a check which i had sent to my mothers address and i later found out she tried to deposit it into her bank account but it got voided, she is now deceased what do ineed to say or include when i file my 2020 1040X form?

*i used freetaxusa to file it by paper.

If your 2020 EIP check was sent and you did not receive it, you need to have the check traced by the IRS.  Amending your 2020 return is not going to help you.

Check your online account to see what the IRS shows for the EIP payments that were issued to you.

 

Try checking your online account with the IRS (and if you filed a joint return—check for BOTH of you)

If you need to trace a payment that the IRS says has been issued to you, mail or fax a completed IRS Form 3911, Taxpayer Statement Regarding Refund.
