Here’s how you can claim a missing stimulus check so you don’t lose out on $1,400

Americans who were entitled to stimulus payments in 2021 but did not get the exact amount may still be eligible for funds.

When completing their 2021 tax returns, anybody who feels they are entitled to more than they got will be eligible to claim the Recovery Rebate Credit.

Families that had a baby in 2021 or added a new dependant to their tax return are eligible for the additional stimulus funds.

Individuals who earned more than $80,000 in 2020 but less in 2021 are also entitled to receive the $1,400 payment if they have not already done so.

For couples, the maximum income limit is $160,000.

The government started handing out the third federal stimulus check in March of last year, and it was mostly based on 2019 and 2020 tax returns.

Many Americans, on the other hand, made less last year, making them eligible for the $1,400.

They would not have gotten the money until they corrected their information with the IRS, since the agency would have assumed they earned too much based on past tax filings.

The IRS reported that the last wave of stimulus checks has been sent, and individuals who are still eligible would not get the $1,400 in a subsequent round of direct payments.
