EIP 2 received after 1/1/21 - claim now?

I am getting to the end of my tax filing and it is asking again for the EIP 2 amount (line 19).  I did not include the second payment in the first portion.  The reason I didn't add it is I did not receive the money in my account until January 4th, 2021.  Am I incorrect, or do I include it in next years taxes?

 

Thanks!

EIP2 is to be reported on the 2020 federal tax return.  EIP is an advance tax credit based on the 2020 federal tax return.

As DoninGA mentioned above, the EIP2 is to be reported on your 2020 tax return. The reduction in your anticipated refund amount can occur for various reasons. some of which can be found here @jr365.
