The stimulus check is an advance on a credit you can receive on your 2020 tax return. If something went wrong or you did not get the stimulus check in 2020, you can get it when you file your 2020 return in early 2021
The Recovery Rebate Credit will be found in the FEDERAL REVIEW section. ( you should see "Let's make sure you got the right stimulus amount”) If you are eligible it will end up on line 30 of your 2020 Form 1040.
Click on Tax Tools on the left side of the screen. Click on Tools. Click on View Tax Summary. Click on Preview my 1040 on the left side of the screen.
You may be eligible for more stimulus money. To check whether you qualify for the Recovery Rebate Credit, TurboTax will need to know what you have received so far. This is done before the Federal Review and after Other Tax Situations.
You need to be at the end of Other Tax Situations, to see it. To get there in TurboTax, follow these steps:
- In your return, click the Other Tax Situations tab toward the top of the page
- Scroll down to the end and click Let's keep going
- At Let's make sure you got the right stimulus amount, click Continue
- Be sure to report an amount for each of the stimulus payments as received and click Continue.
