The fourth stimulus check might not arrive towards the American households so the government had created the Recovery Refund Credit.
It makes it possible for any eligible individual who has not received all of the Economic Impact Payments (also known as stimulus check) to claim the missing amount on his or her tax return.
Americans have this tax season the last chance to claim their last $1,400 stimulus check.
The last $1,400 stimulus check was sent out last March as part of Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan. Those who haven’t received their cash will need to claim it via the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit on their tax return
