What was the error on my 2020 tax return?

I filed for the recovery rebate to get 2nd EIP. I received a letter stating there is an error on tax return. The only income I have is SS disability. IRS states error could be SS#, dependents claimed which I have none, or income exceeds

Did you receive the 1st EIP payment in the same account as you receive your SS benefit payments?  If so, the IRS would have sent the 2nd EIP to the same account and you would have received an IRS Notice 1444-B for the second payment.

The IRS probably denied your Recovery Rebate Credit on the 2020 tax return because they have records showing that you received the payment.


If the payment was never received by you a trace can be put on the payment by the IRS.

What was the error on my 2020 tax return?

May 1st EIP was mailed to my ex husband.  I had changed all my info with IRS but all got messed up somehow. Now im still waiting  on 2nd and 3rd pymnts.which I desperately need due to limited income. Getting Farther and farther behind.  I did get notice sayin 2nd pymnt was maiked never got it. Then got notice saying change was made to the recovery rebate to $0 until reviewed. No 3rd pymnt either. I'm in desperate need of this money. To  catch up bills  ive never been behind til now. My ex got everything.
