While the first two EIP deadlines have passed, the third stimulus check, worth up to $1,400 per person, is still available if you haven’t already gotten it.
According to CNBC.com, the majority of eligible receivers of the payments made available under the American Rescue Plan in March 2021 had already received stimulus funds via direct deposit or postal cheques as of January 2022.
If you haven’t received money, your only choice is to file a 2021 tax return, which is due on April 18.
The 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit, the third stimulus check, was issued based on your income and the number of dependents stated on your 2020 or 2019 tax return.
As a result, if you have qualified dependents, you may owe money in 2021. You may be eligible for a stimulus credit if you did not submit a return in 2019 or 2020.
If you believe you are owed a third government payment but did not receive it, you must complete the Recovery Rebate Tax Credit worksheet and submit it with your 2021 tax return.
The worksheet demonstrates how to determine how much money you are eligible for.
Most households received $1,400 per person in the third stimulus payment, which included all dependents indicated on their tax return.
On average, a single person with no dependents earns $1,400, while a family of four earns $5,600.

If you haven’t received your third stimulus check, you can use the IRS’s “Get My Payment” program, which is available in both English and Spanish and is only available on IRS.gov.
It only updates once a day, in the middle of the night, normally.
If you’re concerned about the status of your third stimulus payment, you can use “track your payment” to obtain a tax refund for the amount owing to you.
