I’m wondering what if u didn’t get no stimulus check during the time they was giving it out how can I claim that?

A) While the official distribution of stimulus checks has ended, you can still claim the missing amount as a tax credit on your tax return. Here’s how:

Which tax return to file:

  • First and Second Stimulus Checks: You can claim these on your 2020 tax return. The deadline to file for this purpose is May 17, 2024.
  • Third Stimulus Check: This can be claimed on your 2021 tax return.

How to claim the credit:

  • The stimulus checks are considered Recovery Rebate Credits. You’ll claim them on the appropriate tax form (1040, 1040-SR, etc.) for the corresponding tax year.
  • Many tax filing software programs will guide you through this process.
  • You can also find information and instructions on the IRS website: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/recovery-rebate-credit
