How do I apply for my children to get the $500 stimulus check or will it automatically come

If you filed a 2018 or 2019 income tax return and claimed your children as dependents, the IRS will automatically add $500 per qualifying dependent to your stimulus check.

Scroll down to How much stimulus money will I get?

 

If you’re wondering how much money you may qualify for under this relief package, TurboTax can help — just fill out the simple fields in our stimulus calculator here to see your estimated amount.

 

Eligible taxpayers will receive up to $1,200 for individuals, $2,400 for joint taxpayers and an additional $500 for each qualifying child under 17. 

  • If you have an adjusted gross income (AGI) of up to $75,000, $112,500 Head of Household, $150,000 married filing jointly, you should be eligible for the full amount of the recovery rebate.
  • The stimulus check rebate completely phases out at $99,000 for single taxpayers, $136,500 for those filing as Head of Household and $198,000 for joint filers with no kids. Your eligibility will be based on information from your most recent tax filings.

A29. If you did not receive the full amount to which you believe you are entitled, you will be able to claim the additional amount when you file your 2020 tax return.  This is particularly important for individuals who may be entitled to the additional $500 per qualifying child dependent payments.
