For EIP3, there was $1400 per person sent out during the March - May, 2021 timeframe.  Check your bank account records.  DO NOT GUESS how much you received when prompted by TT as it can affect your refund. 

 

you are eiligible for EITHER the stimulus or the recovery credit, but not both.  if you are due anything additional, it will appear on Line 30 of your tax return. 

 

EIP1 and EIP2 relate to the 2020 tax return only.

EIP3,  $1400 per person, was for the taxpayer, spouse (if filing a joint return), and each dependent, regardless of age.   EIP1 and EIP2, for dependents, were only for qualified children under 17

The first EIP --or stimulus check--- was issued in 2020  It was for $1200 for adults and $500 for a dependent under the age of 17.   The IRS used information from either your 2019 or 2020 tax return to issue those checks so they could send them out in a hurry.

 

The 2nd EIP or stimulus was issued in late 2020 or early 2021 and was $600 for adults and $600 for dependents under age 17.

 

If you did not receive the 1st and/or 2nd stimulus check you can get it by filing a 2020 tax return and using the recovery rebate credit in Federal Review.   It will end up on line 30 of a 2020 tax return and will be added to your refund (or reduce your tax due).

 

The 3rd EIP--or stimulus check-- was sent out in mid-March or later in 2021 and was for $1400 per person--adults and dependents no age limit.

 

If you did not get the 3rd EIP payment you can get it by filing a 2021 tax return and using the recovery rebate credit in Federal Review.   The credit will go on line 30 of your Form 1040 and will add to your refund (or reduce your tax due).
