Stimulus Check 2022: Claim Your Missing Stimulus Checks

It may seem hopeless at this point to receive any overdue Stimulus Checks, as the three Economic Impact Payments (EIP) have already been distributed and the Get My Payment application to track your stimulus checks is no longer available (or question the amounts you have received). However, there are still a few ways to ensure that you receive your funds.

Stimulus Check For Millions Of Families

Details recently released by the IRS suggest that taxpayers filing their federal returns in 2020 or 2021 may be eligible to claim a Recovery Rebate Credit to make up for payments that were either not made or were made improperly.

The first and second Stimulus Checks, respectively, were awarded in 2020 and early 2021 as payments in anticipation of the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit. The IRS suggests that money may have been deducted in 2020.

By keeping the Free File program running for an extra month, the IRS is facilitating the filing of more tax returns by individuals seeking COVID stimulus benefits like the Child Tax Credit.

The IRS has released a statement saying that nearly 9 million people are eligible for the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit, the Child Tax Credit, and the Earned Income Tax Credit but have not claimed the payments. Although many taxpayers who have filed extensions have until Monday to complete their extensions, Free File will be accessible until November 17th.

Before the end of November, those who are jobless, have modest salaries, lack access to the internet, or are temporarily without a home should apply for Stimulus Check. Workers with low or moderate salaries who are entitled to tax credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit have had the deadline for filing their tax forms extended to October 17 by the Internal Revenue Service (EITC).

Three Stimulus Checks, totaling $931 billion, will be distributed between April 2020 and December 2021 to eligible individuals and families to get by during the pandemic. The help money was available to most persons with incomes of less than $75,000 per individual or $150,000 per couple.
