I found a link on the IRS web site that answers your question (webpage states it is for the first payment, but it should still apply) - IRS Newsroom Specifically: you may need to request a payment trace so the IRS can determine if your payment was cashed If the check was never cashed, they will "credit your account" but will not issue another ...

The 2nd check is only since January 2021, you can still deposit the check. Do so ASAP. The first check is older. You should try and deposit it. The IRS sent the checks. You shouldn't claim on you didn't get them. Try to deposit them first. So what happens if the check was lost? the IRS has a FAQ, this is pulled from the FAQ related to the first check: Q F1....

No. There are two parts to the stimulus payment: the advance refund (the "check") and the tax credit (in the case of the third stimulus payment, it's a tax credit for the 2021 tax year). For the advance refund, you received the correct amount; and for the tax credit, the lowest it can be is 0 (it cannot be negative). Let's look at the text of the ...

The IRS has done a good job of creating a FAQ for each change in the tax law regarding these payments, they have even updated them as the situation has changed: From the IRS: Questions and Answers about the Third Economic Impact Payments — Topic H: Reconciling on Your 2021 Tax Return I received a Third Economic Impact Payment. Do I need to pay back all or ...

No, you don’t have a choice of the year (otherwise, I‘d use 1968, I had no income at all then). However, the recent 1400 $ payment is based on 2021 income - only the preliminary calculation is done with 2020 (or 2019, whatever the IRS happens to have). So they have the whole year to plan careful, and get the 1400 per person when they file their taxes for ...

Each person's stimulus payment and amount are determined independently according to that taxpayer's tax situation and the rules in the law. Different people's stimulus amounts are not connected. From what I can tell, the stimulus amounts received by both of you are correct according to your tax situations and the law, and therefore nothing needs to be, or ...

UPDATE: The IRS should be processing most SSI/SSDI/Federal Railroad Pension recipient payments for the third stimulus payout this weekend, with most people seeing the money in their accounts by April 7, according to the IRS. It appears that the Social Security Administration, which is responsible for managing the lists of recipients, failed to send the file ...

There is a procedure for returning a stimulus payment. However, it is unclear exactly when it is required to return it and when it is not required. It seems logical to me (although tax regulations do not always follow logic) that if the stimulus payment was paid because of your own error, you would probably be well-advised to return it (Example 1, Example 2)....

There is no clear "cut-off date"; and even if you did file your tax return before they make the determination, there is no guarantee that they will have processed it by the time they make the determination. If they send you a 3rd stimulus check amount based on your 2019 tax return, and you would qualify for a bigger amount based on your 2020 tax ...

The amount that you just received via direct deposit could be one of two things: First, it could be your actual tax refund. You would know if it is this because the amount you received should be the amount that was on the bottom of your Form 1040 (Line 35a). Yes, if you filed Form 1040 when you should have filed Form 1040-NR, you may have calculated too ...
