I received the 3rd stimulus for myself but not for the twins born in 2020. How do I get the stimulus for them also? I’ve already filed my taxes.

I received the 3rd stimulus for myself but not for the twins born in 2020. How do I get the stimulus for them also? I’ve already filed my taxes.

You will have to file a 2020 Federal 1040 tax return and claim a Recovery Rebate Credit (RRC) on line 30 of the 2020 1040 tax return.  The children must be reported as qualifying children.  The interview questions in TurboTax will assist you in making that determination.

 

Who is considered a qualifying child?

 

A qualifying child is a child who meets the following conditions: 

  • Relationship to the individual who’s eligible for the payment: The child is your son, daughter, stepchild, eligible foster child, brother, sister, stepbrother, stepsister, half-brother, half-sister, or a descendant of any of them (for example, grandchild, niece, or nephew).
  • Child's age: The child was under age 17 on December 31, 2019.
  • Dependent of the individual who's eligible for the payment: The child was claimed as your dependent on your 2019 tax return or in the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool.
  • Child's citizenship: The child’s a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or U.S. resident alien.
  • Child's residency: The child lived with you for more than half of 2019.
  • Support for child: The child didn’t provide over half of their own support for 2019.
  • Child's tax return: The child doesn’t file a joint return for the year (or files it only to claim a refund of withheld income tax or estimated tax paid).

If you have not received one or both of your stimulus checks, you will receive your payment in the form of a Recovery Rebate Credit on line 30 of your 2020 Federal tax return when you file.

 

TurboTax will compare your one or two stimulus payment amounts to the computations within TurboTax.  The computations within TurboTax are based upon the information that you have entered into the tax software.  If you are due an additional amount, it will be issued as a Recovery Rebate Credit (RRC) on line 30 of the 2020 1040 tax return.

 

If you have e-filed your 2020 Federal tax return and the tax return is accepted by the IRS, you will have to amend your 2020 Federal tax return and correct the entries and calculations to receive the Recovery Rebate Credit.  Amended tax returns will not be available until March 25.  See forms availability.

 

If you have e-filed your 2020 Federal tax return and the tax return is rejected by the IRS, you will have to correct the entries and calculations to receive the Recovery Rebate Credit as well as correct the entries that generated the rejection.

 

In TurboTax Online, you are prompted to input stimulus check 1 and stimulus check 2 information under Review down the left hand side of the screen.  You may also access your stimulus check choices by following these steps: 

  • Down the left side of the screen, click on Federal.
  • Across the top of the screen, click on Other Tax Situations.
  • At the screen Let’s keep going to wrap up.  Click on Let’s keep going.
  • At the screen Let’s make sure you got the right stimulus amount, click Continue.
  • At the screen Did you get a stimulus payment? you can update your stimulus check entries.

I filed my taxes before the 3rd stimulus was passed. How do I get the credit for my twins I added to my taxes this year? I already received a stimulus payment for myself.

Congratulations on receiving the third stimulus!

 

I assume that the IRS is issuing your third stimulus on the basis of 2019 tax information.  Is the bank deposit information on the 2020 Federal tax return different from what was on your 2019 Federal tax return?

 

When did you file your 2020 Federal 1040 tax return?  I suspect that the IRS was not able to update its third stimulus information with information from your 2020 Federal 1040 tax return?

 

We do not have information about what procedures the IRS will be following in cases like yours.

 

Follow the TurboTax COVID Tax Center and the IRS Economic Impact Payment Information Center as further updates are issued by the IRS.
