My most recent tax filing was in 2019(for the 2018 tax year) with TurboTax. The third stimulus check was mailed and then returned to the IRS and in order to have it direct deposited I need to provide info from my most recent return. I input the exact numbers for AGI and Refund Amount as shown on my TurboTax records for 2018 but Get My Payment says the information doesn't match their records. Why is this happening?
Sometimes the AGI number on their database gets reset to zero. I would try using zero as AGI. Also did you get the refund amount that your TurboTax is showing or was it reduced for any reason?
Please explain "the third stimulus check was mailed and then returned..." Where was the check mailed to? If the IRS sent you a check in the mail why was it returned---that does not make sense.
Hi! I received the first two stimulus checks by mail to my foreign address. The third one was unable to be delivered and was returned to the IRS by the postal service. Since it was returned to the IRS, I now need to provide information so it can be direct deposited to me.
Have you tried having the payment traced?
The IRS will not make a direct deposit to a foreign bank. They will only mail a check to the address on your tax return. Unless you have a U.S. bank account you cannot get a direct deposit.
Ok ... did you move since the 2018 return was filed? If so file a form 8822 to update the address ... this should get the payment rereleased. https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/about-form-8822
If this cannot be resolved you can get the credit when you file the 2021 return ... the third payment will be a credit on that return.
Did you file a NON filer return to get the first 2 stimulus payments by any chance ? If so you DID file a 2019 return with a $1 AGI.
Open an account at the IRS site if you can and look at the transcript to verify that is what happened :
