See How do I claim the Recovery Rebate Credit in TurboTax?

 

 The Recovery Rebate Credit is a new addition to the federal income tax return. Filers who didn't receive the full amount of stimulus they're entitled to can claim it on the 2020 tax return..

If you did not receive the stimulus payments but indicated you did on your tax return, you would need to amend your return to reflect that you did not receive the payments.

How to amend my return?

 

When you prepare your amended 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.  
  4. 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.

 

Please see the attached link for more information on who can claim the credit.

Yes, it makes to wait until until the tax return can be amended within the program.

 

Please see the link below for more information as to the expected release date of the 1040X form (Amended tax return form).
