Check your 2020 & 2021 returns line 30 for the Recovery Rebate Credit.  If you didn't get a stimulus check you should get a credit on line 30.  Did you get a IRS letter 6475?  It says how much the IRS sent you.   Double check your bank statements and Check your IRS account (both accounts if married)

EIP1 The first Stimulus payment was 1,200 for each spouse and 500 for each dependent under 17.  Came out in spring of 2020.

 

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.

 

EIP3 The 3rd Stimulus payment started going out in March 2021 and is for 1,400 for each person listed on your tax return, no age limit. The IRS used your 2020 (or 2019) return to send the checks out fast. If your 2021 return changes and you qualify for more you can claim the extra as the Recovery Rebate Credit on 1040 line 30. But line 30 is only if you didn't get the full amount or qualify for more. Not the amount you already got. The IRS also sent out letter 6475 to tell you how much they sent you . If you are married then each spouse should get a letter for half.

Assuming that you were not a dependent on someone else's tax return and you used TurboTax for both your 2020 and 2021 tax returns -

You were asked in the TurboTax program for tax year 2020 if you received the stimulus payments EIP1 and EIP2 in 2020.  If you answered that you did NOT receive those payments then the Recovery Rebate Credit for those payments would have been entered on Line 30 of the Form 1040.  The Credit would have been included in the federal tax refund or the Credit would have reduced the amount of federal taxes owed.

 

You were again asked in the TurboTax program for tax year 2021 if you received the stimulus payment EIP3 in 2021.  If you answered that you did NOT receive the EIP3 payment then the Recovery Rebate Credit for the payment would have been entered on Line 30 of the Form 1040.  Again, the Credit would have been included in the federal tax refund or the Credit would have reduced the amount of federal taxes owed.

 

Look at your tax returns for tax year 2020 and 2021 for the credit on Line 30 of the Form 1040.

 

Go to this IRS website for your tax account to see if the 3rd stimulus payment is entered - https://www.irs.gov/payments/your-online-account
If you are Married Filing Jointly also check your spouse's tax account.


If you checked your bank account in for EIP1 and EIP2 in 2020 and EIP3 in 2021 and the payment from the IRS is not shown then go to this IRS website for how to start a trace on the EIP3 payment - https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/questions-and-answers-about-the-third-economic-impact-payment-topic-j-p...
