My daughter was born December 2020. Would we get a stimulus for her? We aren’t getting the CTC because we had to select the other dependents, but it would help pay for childcare for the year if we got the stimulus.

If your income is under the cut-off levels, you should receive the first 2 stimulus payments on your 2020 tax return (they are called the "Recovery Rebate Credit").  Look at line 30 of your return to see if the amount is filled in for $1,100 (the first payment was $500 per child and the second was $600 for a total of $1,100).  The 3rd Stimulus payment is still going out in waves, so if you have not received that payment, you should in the next couple of months.  If you have not filed your 2020 tax return, do so as soon as possible.

My income was under the cutoff but nothing is on line 30. How do I fix that?

 Like this be because I didn’t get the child tax credit? I’m having to amend my return for 2020. @mfields2

Yes.  If it was checked under Other Dependents and not for the Child Tax Credit that was wrong.  You answered a question wrong. You need to amend your return.  You should get the $1,100(500+600) Recovery rebate credit on 1040 line 30 unless your income was too high.


A child born (even on Dec 31) is considered to live with you the whole year.  So you should have picked the Whole Year at the top of the drop down box when you entered your baby.
