By November 17, it was far too late to file a claim for any unclaimed Stimulus Checks or child tax credit (CTCP); nevertheless, this does not imply you will never get the funds. One can still avow any fund that is owed to you when you file your taxes in 2023, even if the IRS Free File arrangement has been terminated for the remainder of the year.
Due to the fact that they were not compelled to file a return or since they needed more time, almost 9 million persons who have not yet received their Stimulus Checks didn’t file a tax return this year. The eligibility of both these payments was determined by the IRS based on tax filings.
Free File Tool Users And Stimulus Check Due Dates
For individuals who used the IRS Free File tool, the time limit to submit a claim for an unclaimed Stimulus Check or CTC funds was Thursday, November 17, at 11:59 p.m. ET. The tool is intended for people whose lower incomes often exclude them from the requirement to file and submit taxes.
The due day for submitting a tax return, whether you filed an extension previously this year or have not yet, was October 17. Also, that was the deadline for submitting Form 1040 in order to avoid an overdue filing fine. One has until February 15, 2023, to register a claim if impacted by one of the earlier natural catastrophes, like the Ian hurricane. But the deadline to submit was Tuesday, November 15, if you reside in a region where the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has declared a disaster, such as Missouri or Kentucky.
Don’t panic if anyone has missed out on any of the aforementioned deadlines for claiming any unclaimed stimulus funds or CTCP. Even if one won’t get the money this year, he/she can still lay claim to it when they submit their taxes in the year 2023. 2025’s Tax Day will serve as the final deadline for filing a claim, however, it is advised to do so as feasible as one can.
