No, they paid for only Challyse-Fe and Dallas. I called them about it and they said I have to do a 1040-X

We do not know who Jason is or why you need to amend.    If Jason was your dependent child and he was UNDER the age of 17 at the end of 2020 then you can amend and use the recovery rebate credit to get the 1st and/or 2nd stimulus amount for claiming him as a dependent.    If he was older than 16 at the end of 2020 you do not get the 1st or 2nd stimulus payment for him, but you could get the third one.   There is no where on a 2020 return to enter anything about the 3rd stimulus.  The IRS issues that one at a later time.

 

Do not amend until your original return has been fully processed.   It takes a very long time for the IRS to process an amended return so do not expect quick results.  It can take six months or more to receive the check for an amended return.

 

 

Select your tax year for amending instructions:

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.

 

Make sure that you enter ALL of the stimulus money received for the 1st and 2nd stimulus for yourself, your spouse and your children.
