Stimulus

I just filed my taxes. I had not received my second stimulus payment, and noted as much in my taxes. 

I have now received my stimulus card, the day after I filed. What are my next steps?

Stimulus

If your e-file is still pending, you won't be able to make changes until the IRS either accepts or rejects your return. It is highly likely that the IRS will reject your return due to incorrect input of your stimulus payments. If they don't, it is possible your refund/amount due will be automatically adjusted based on the stimulus money you received. 

 

If your return is rejected, you will have to amend your return. To do so, please follow the directions on the How do I amend my 2020 return?

 

After you click to amend your return, you can follow these steps in TurboTax to reenter your answers:

  1. With your return open, search for stimulus with the magnifying glass tool on the top of the page.
  2. Select the Jump to Stimulus in the search results to directly go to correct TurboTax page.
  3. Follow the on screen instructions and reenter the correct information.
