IRS Letter 6475

Letter 6475 is a detailed letter explaining whether you can get the recovery rebate credit on your tax return or not.

36 million households will be getting this letter, and if you missed out on any stimulus cash it’s important you keep this letter.

This letter is only for the third stimulus check in 2021, not the first two in 2020.

Any money received from plus up payments counts towards the third payment.

It’s important to hold onto these letters to be sure all information is correct and you won’t see a delay when waiting for a refund.
