Stimulus Checks have provided a huge respite not only for adults but also for children. Those who qualify under the Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit Act should have received either $1,200 per adult plus $500 per child under 17 or, in many cases, less if their income is above a certain threshold. This can include people who paid for daycare services so they could work or look for work during the year.
Because of a quirk in tax law, some families didn’t receive these payments last month—and may not get them until late December or even early January 2023. But there is an easy way to check to see if you qualify: simply visit this IRS website and enter your information into the fields provided.
Stimulus Check: Child Tax Credit Update
The IRS is always working on behalf of taxpayers to ensure that they have their refunds as soon as possible. But it’s important to note that the agency isn’t a bank and doesn’t have the same level of oversight or control over your money. The IRS will likely only know when a refund has been deposited into your account if you give them permission through its “Direct Deposit Sign Up Tool.” However, if this information isn’t current, you may still be waiting for your refund check even after it’s processed by your financial institution and sent out to your home address.
You can check the status of your stimulus check refund on the IRS website. If you don’t see it listed, contact the IRS.
If you filed an amended return and haven’t received a response from them yet, wait a few more days before contacting them again. It may take longer than usual to process these returns because of all the changes made this year.
