Can I receive a stimulus with my 2020 tax return if I did not receive one in 2020 because in 2019 I was a dependent of my parents, but in 2020 I was not.

Since it is listed as a credit against our 2020 returns, I would think I should receive it

Can I receive a stimulus with my 2020 tax return if I did not receive one in 2020 because in 2019 I was a dependent of my parents, but in 2020 I was not.

If you are not a dependent of your parents for tax year 2020, you are eligible for both stimulus payments.

 

You can claim them as the Recovery Rebate credit on your 2020 tax return.

 

In TurboTax Online, to claim the Recovery Rebate credit please do the following:

  1. Sign into your account and continue from where you left off
  2. Click on Federal in the left-hand column, then on Federal Review on the top of the screen
  3. On the next page titled Let's make sure you got the right stimulus amount, click on Continue
  4. Follow the interview
  5. TurboTax will determine whether you are entitled to any additional stimulus
  6. Any stimulus amount remaining due to you will show as a credit on line 30 of your form 1040.
