I’m curious on how to get the 3rd stimulus check ? I just filed for the first time to receive them and only got approved for 2 of them. I don’t have my w2s for the last one maybe because I moved and think maybe the was mailed to my old address

Ok ... first the third stimulus would be released after you filed the 2020 return and it was fully processed.  If you have moved since you filed you need to mail in a form 8822 to update the address on file.  If for any reason you don't get the third stimulus by the end of the year then it will be a credit on the 2021 return you will file next year.



Now did you file a 2020 return and fail to include ALL your income ?   If so you need to amend the 2020 return to add the missing money :

The IRS is not issuing any more round 3 stimulus checks.  If you are eligible and did not receive a check, you can claim a rebate on your 2021 tax return.
