Paying taxes on Stimulous money

I filed my taxes with Turbo Tax the first weekend in February. 

Shortly after we got our refund back, we received

a letter from the Government saying we didn’t have

to pay taxes on the Stimulus money we received in 2021.  What kind of

Tax amendment forms do I need to fill out to get that refund? 

Can Turbo Tax help me with that?

Paying taxes on Stimulous money

Was that the letter 6475?  No you didn't pay any tax on it.  The letter was just telling you it isn't taxable.  There is nothing you need to do or get back.  Did you get your whole refund or did the IRS reduce it? 

How or where do you think it was taxed?  Look at your tax return.   It is not added as income anywhere or subtracted anywhere.  Income is only on 1040 lines 1-11.  The Recovery rebate credit on line 30 is only if you didn't get the Stimulus payment or qualify for more.  Do you have anything on line 30?
