The deadline for the first two Economic Impact Payments has gone, but the third stimulus check, worth up to $1,400 per person, is still available if you haven’t received it yet.
According to CNBC.com, by January 2022, the bulk of qualified recipients of the payments made possible by the American Rescue Plan in March 2021 had already received stimulus payments via direct deposit or mailed checks.
Your only option if you haven’t received payment is to file a 2021 tax return, which is due on April 18.
The third stimulus check, the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit, was issued depending on your income and the number of dependents listed on your 2020 or 2019 tax return.
As a result, you may owe money in 2021 if you have eligible dependents.
If you did not file a return in 2019 or 2020, you may be eligible for a stimulus credit.
You must complete the Recovery Rebate Tax Credit worksheet and submit it with your 2021 tax return if you feel you are owed a third government payment but did not receive it.
The worksheet shows how to figure out how much money you’re qualified for.
The third stimulus check gave most households $1,400 per person, including all dependents, which they claimed on their tax return.
