The recovery rebate credit gives people the chance to receive their economic impact payment that they may not have been given the first time around.

It can be claimed as a credit on your 2022 tax return.

If you missed the full payment but qualified, you can claim the full amount of $1,400.

If you only received a partial payment, you can claim the rest.


IRS: Some surprised to find they owe taxes for 2021

Who can claim the stimulus check on their tax return from the IRS?

You’ll need to show the IRS what money you were supposed to be sent in order to claim it.

Parents who birthed, adopted, or fostered a child in 2021 that the IRS was unaware of are eligible to receive up to $1,400.

If a parent added a new dependent to their return, like a parent or other family member, may claim a check.

If your income changed or went down, making it so you actually qualified but the IRS used old income information, you can claim it.
