Wat to do i didnt click on recover rebate credit when i filled taxes

It depends.


Did you already file your income tax return?


If so, you would need to amend your return if you were eligible to claim the Recovery Rebate Credit.


Steps for amending a tax return


There are certain requirements that must be met to obtain the Rebate Recovery Credit.  As long as you meet the requirements as provided in the following link, you will be able to claim the credit.


Recovery Rebate Credit Eligibility



If you determine you need to amend your 2020 income tax return, be sure to do the following to ensure the credit is calculated correctly on your income tax return.


  1. In the Federal section, select the Federal Review interview section at the top of the screen.
  2. This will take you to the input section for the Recovery Rebate credit.
  3. Be sure to indicate the actual amount of each stimulus payment you received on the page that asks if you received a stimulus payment.  

There will be two boxes and both need to be completed.  If you did not receive any stimulus payments, please indicate We didn't get a stimulus payment by checking that box.
