Need help recovering my 1,2 and 3 stimulus checks

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.

 

Double check your bank statements and Check your IRS account (both accounts if married)

@mannieb1234 did you file your 2020 and 2021 tax return?

 

if yes, what is on Line 30 of Form 1040 for each year?  Soif there are figures on Line 30, THAT is where you are getting the stimulus payments. 

 

you are eligible for the Recovery Rebate Credit (line 30) or the stimulus payments, but not both.

Need help recovering my 1,2 and 3 stimulus checks

Received the third stimulus just recently on August the 10th 2022. I was wondering how would I go about receiving the other two stimulus payments. Talk to the IRS and they stated that I'm due $1800

How did you get the third stimulus in August 2022?  Was it part of your 2021 refund  on 1040 line 30 (Recovery Rebate Credit)?

@BatMan1987 - you can get the 1st two stimulus payments by filing your 2020 tax return. THe $1800 will be reflected on Line 30 of Form 1040

@BatMan1987 You will need to file a 2020 tax return.   You cannot use the online program for a 2020 return.   You will need the CD/download on a full PC or Mac, and the return will need to be filed by mail.    Use the recovery rebate credit in Federal Review to get the 1st and/or 2nd stimulus amount.

 

 

 

Online preparation and e-filing for 2018 and 2019 and 2020 is permanently closed.

To file a return for a prior tax year

 If you need to prepare a return for 2018, 2019 or 2020 you can purchase and download desktop software to do it, then print, sign,  and mail the return(s)

You may also want to explore purchasing the software from various retailers such as Amazon, Costco, Best Buy, Walmart, Sam’s, etc.

 

Remember to prepare your state return as well—if you live in a state that has a state income tax.

When you mail a tax return, you need to attach any documents showing tax withheld, such as your W-2’s or any 1099’s.  Use a mailing service that will track it, such as UPS or certified mail so you will know the IRS/state received the return.

Federal and state returns must be in separate envelopes and they are mailed to different addresses.  Read the mailing instructions that print with your tax return carefully so you mail them to the right addresses.

 

Note:  The desktop software you need to prepare the prior year return must be installed/downloaded to a full PC or Mac.  It cannot be used on a mobile device.
