Millions of Americans had missed out on their stimulus checks in 2021 even after qualifying for the payments.
There have been various reasons as to why you might not have received the payment but it is not too late to claim the cash, as of yet.
Under the American Rescue Act in 2021, the citizens had qualified for both the stimulus checks and the advanced payments through the child tax credit.
The child tax credits and stimulus checks are refundable this year, so you can get your money back with this refund.
Most people might not have seen the money in 2021 when they were supposed to. This was only because they did not make enough to need to files taxes in the previous years.
These payments were sent on the basis of their return on taxes, so if there were no files on them, the IRS did not send anything to them.
The People Who Did Not Need To File A Tax Return And Missed Their Stimulus Checks
If you make under $12,550 at or over age 65, you do not need to file a tax return.
If you’re in the category of people that aren’t required to file taxes in 2022, you still should get the refund.
People who are eligible can claim the recovery rebate credit for the full amount or the partial amount depending on what they received last year.
This is also how parents will need to claim the remaining balance for their child’s tax credit. There was a way for those who do not file to claim their taxes last year, but the deadline has passed.
