Why does Turbotax not ask me about recovery rebate? This has been noted on Reddit complaining as well.

It bypasses the Recovery Act portion.  My son’s Turbotax does nut not ours.

The stimulus check is an advance on a credit you can receive on your 2020 tax return.  If something went wrong or you did not get the stimulus check in 2020, you can get it when you file your 2020 return in early 2021

The Recovery Rebate Credit will be found in the FEDERAL REVIEW section. ( you should see "Let's make sure you got the right stimulus amount”)  If you are eligible it will end up on line 30 of your 2020 Form 1040.

 

Make sure that you enter ALL of the stimulus money received for the 1st ad 2nd stimulus for yourself, your spouse and your children.

If you follow the interview then everyone who is not being claimed as a dependent will be asked about the advance stimulus payments ...  this is right after the Other Tax Situations tab as you enter the Federal Review tab  ... stimulus Q intro.pngstimulus Q second payment.png

make sure you are not clicking that you may be claimed as a dependent on someone else's return. It will by pass those questions. If you are then you will not be able to claim recovery on TT online.

Also if your income is above the phase out range for any of the recovery credit that screen will not be presented.
