Some Americans may be eligible to get $1,400 payment in 2022.
If you didn’t get your stimulus last year, you can still claim it.
How can I get the payment?
In order to claim the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit, you’ll have to do it before the April 18 tax filing deadline. The $1,400 payment is available to those who never received the third round stimulus in 2021 but were eligible. Read more about it here.
Before you file for the credit, the IRS suggests looking through your bank record to ensure it wasn’t deposited sometime last year.
The third round stimulus payments were based on your 2020 income and tax information. If your income decreased from 2020 to 2021 you are likely eligible for the credit.
In January, the IRS mailed out Letter 6475. You’ll need this in order to claim the payment. Some Americans could get the $1,400 payment included in their tax returns.
