So in 2019, my AGI was $172k, but my AGI in 2020 dropped to $124k. I filed my taxes on 2/12/21 and was accepted on 2/13. Finally got a notice that my tax refund will be direct deposited on 4/7. YAY! BUT, I haven't seen anything on Get My Payment about my 3rd stimulus check. Anyone else in the same boat? I was wondering if we will still get the 3rd stimulus soon or will we have to claim it on our 2022 taxes. There's no clear explanation of this situation. HALP!! Sank You!
If you qualify for the third stimulus based on your 2020 tax return, you will get it.
The IRS says in this document:
If a taxpayer's payment is less than the full amount and is based on their 2019 return, they may qualify for a supplemental payment after they file their 2020 return. The IRS will automatically reevaluate their eligibility. If the agency determines that they are entitled to a larger payment or the full payment, it will send them a supplemental payment covering the difference between what they originally received and the larger amount. If the re-evaluated amount is smaller, they won't need to pay back the difference. Aside from filing a 2020 tax return, no action is needed on their part.
If you do not receive it 2021, you may be able to claim it as the Recovery Rebate credit on your 2021 tax return.
