An update from the IRS..
I spoke with someone this morning at the IRS who stated that in circumstances like these, one spouse will get direct deposit and the other will receive a paper check. The second half of the payment MAY be direct deposited later, hopefully, but if not you will receive a paper check in the next 2-3 weeks. They cannot explain why.
The get my payment option shows that the funds are being deposited into my bank account but the bank only received one payment under my name. The other check should be in my spouses name.
I will share this on the original post, also.
This same thing is happening to my husband and I. We are supposed to receive 4200 and only are receiving 2100. We have 1 dependent who is under 3 and are well under the income threshold as well. Trying to decide who to contact. Turbo or IRS? Either way I'm sure it is going to be a headache. Our last 2 checks were fine.
Our last two checks were fine, too!
I contacted the IRS and they kind of shrugged and said they didn't know why this had happened. I wasn't sure if contacting turbotax would help. I can give it a shot though!
@rae-e-arnold Are you asking about the 3rd Stimulus check that is just coming out now? Did you get it already? Or on your 2020 tax return? Your tax return only reconciles the first and second stimulus checks. What did you already get for those last April and December? You should get $1,100 (500+600) for the new baby on your 1040 tax return line 30 for the Recovery Rebate Credit.
This is exactly happened to us. We already filed and received our 2020 taxes. Had a baby in early 2020. No debt owe and made less in 2020 than 2019. Thank you for posting this. Hope we can all share our solution.
Yes, asking about 3rd stimulus check. We did get it already and it is incorrect, directly deposited into our bank account.
We have already submitted our 2020 taxes and didn't know if we did something to mess up the 3rd stimulus check. However, Turbo Tax confirmed today that we did everything accurate and we should have received $4200.
