Individuals who were eligible for stimulus payments in 2021 but did not get the full amount may still be eligible.
Anyone who believes they should have received more money while filing their 2021 tax returns may be eligible for the Recovery Rebate Credit.
In 2021, families who had children or added a new dependent to their tax return will be eligible for additional stimulus funding.
People who earned more than $80,000 in 2020 but less in 2021 and were not qualified for the $1,400 compensation the first time around are also eligible this time.
In a year, a couple may earn up to $160,000.
The government started giving out tax returns for 2019 and 2020 in March, and this year’s third federal stimulus payout was mostly based on those results.
In contrast, the outbreak prompted many Americans to earn less last year, allowing them to get the $1,400 in benefits.
If they hadn’t updated their IRS information, the agency would have thought they earned too much money based on previous tax files and refused to pay them.
Since the IRS has sent its final batch of stimulus checks to those who are still eligible, there will be no more direct payouts of $1,400.
The payment deadline had been set for December 31, 2021.

To get the funds, you must file a tax return for the year 2021. You have until Monday, April 18 to file your 2022 tax returns.
To get compensation, you must claim the Recovery Rebate Credit on your tax return.
Credit applicants must be aware of the whole amount of their third round of economic payments.
You may find this number on IRS Letter 6475, which is being sent to every American home, or in your IRS online account.
