You Still Have Time To Redeem Your Stimulus Checks

Those who could be eligible for the RRC are reminded by the IRS to submit a tax rebate and collect their funds before the last date arrives. I understand your thought process: wasn’t it a very long ago? Sure.

Context Of These Stimulus Checks 

The CARES Act made EIPs, available in March 2020. EIPs may total over $1,200 for eligible adults and $500 for each qualifying kid under the age of 17. If an individual’s AGI exceeded $75K ($150K for married individuals filing a combined return), the payments were lowered.

Late in December 2020, the TRA of 2020 was passed into law, allowing for extra payments of as much as 600 dollars for each adult for suitable people and over $600 per qualifying kid under the age of seventeen. The AGI criteria under the CARES Act were the same as those at which the paychecks started to be withheld.

The ARPA of 2021, which went into effect towards the beginning of March of that year, gave eligible people an EIP of above $1,400, or $2.8K for couples filing together, and an additional $1.4K for each dependant who qualifies, including adult dependents. The majority of individuals got their stimulus cheques, also known as EIPs, in the past two years of COVID-19. Stimulus Checks might be claimed by those who either didn’t get them at all or got the incorrect amount by completing a tax rebate and requesting the RRC. There is still time if you were first overlooked: 17th May 2024, and 15th April 2025, are the deadlines for filing a rebate and claiming the 2021 and 2020 credits, respectively. 

If you don’t file, you can’t get the credit. It’s crucial to remember that:

  • The amounts received, including any offsets, should be included by anybody who did not get the entire amount of the two stimulus checks when they filed. 
  • Your refund will not be lessened by the stimulus checks.
  • The stimulus payouts are exempt from taxes.
