If you filed taxes in either 2020 or 2021, there’s a good chance that you’ll be receiving one of these checks soon. If you didn’t file taxes, however—or if you did but had an adjusted gross income above the thresholds listed above—you must wait until 2022 to receive your stimulus payment. The stimulus check is based on your tax return for either 2020 or 2021, whichever is more recent.
Some Americans who were eligible for a stimulus check didn’t receive one because they didn’t file a tax return.

If you’re expecting a check and haven’t received one yet, that could be why: You weren’t required to file in order to receive the money.
Stimulus Check Worth $3200 Coming Up

- You must have lived in your own home or apartment for at least six months during one of those two tax years.
- You must not have received a previous stimulus payment (unless it was for another person).
