I never received my $600 from government

If you are referring to the second stimulus payment that would have been reported on your 2020 tax return as a Recovery Rebate Credit if you never received that stimulus payment.  Look at your 2020 tax return on Line 30 for the credit.


Go to this IRS website for your tax account to see if the 2nd stimulus payment is entered -


If the account shows as sent by the IRS then you will need to put a trace on the payment.

Go to this IRS website for how to request a trace on the 1st or 2nd stimulus payment -


If your account shows that the stimulus payment was never sent then you will need to file a 2020 amended tax return for the Recovery Rebate Credit.

See this TurboTax support FAQ for amending a 2020 tax return originally completed and filed using TurboTax -

$600 for what?  For the 2nd EIP Stimulus payment?  it should have been on your 2020 return if you didn't get it.  Check your 2020 return.  


EIP1 The first Stimulus payment was 1,200 for each spouse and 500 for each dependent under 17.

EIP2 The second Stimulus was 600 per person and dependents under 17. The 2nd stimulus checks started going out at the very end of December 2020 and continued into January/Feb 2021.
The first 2 Stimulus payments went on your 2020 return even if you got the second one in Jan/Feb 2021.
