All Third-round Economic Impact Payments Have Been Sent, According to the IRS.
On Thursday, Jan. 26, the IRS stated that all third-round Economic Impact Payments had been mailed out.
People can still claim any outstanding stimulus money owing to them as part of their 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit on their 2021 income tax return.
Some Economic Impact Payments from 2021, which were advance payments of the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit, may still be in the mail, according to the IRS, but the agency is no longer providing payments as required by law.
The IRS distributed more than 175 million third-round payments totalling more than $400 billion to individuals and families through December 31.
In late January, the IRS started sending out Letter 6475, Your Third Economic Impact Payment, to beneficiaries of the third-round Economic Impact Payment.
This letter will assist recipients in determining if the Recovery Rebate Credit should be claimed on their 2021 tax returns.
Because their circumstances in 2021 were different than they were in 2020, some families may not have received the entire amount of their third-round Economic Impact Payment, according to the IRS. The following are some of the reasons.
Parents or guardians who added a new qualified kid to their family in 2021 and did not get a third-round Economic Impact Payment for that child may be entitled to claim a credit of up to $1,400 for that child.
Families that added a dependant to their household may be eligible for a $1,400 Recovery Rebate Credit in 2021.
Individuals earn more than $80,000 in 2020 but less than that in 2021. This amount is $160,000 for married couples filing jointly.
The sum for the head of household is $120,000. Those who qualify might get up to $1,400 per person.
In 2020, single filers with earnings between $75,000 and $80,000 had lower incomes than single filers with incomes between $75,000 and $80,000 in 2021.
Incomes between $150,000 and $160,000 for married couples filing jointly. Between $112,500 to $120,000 for the head of the family. The 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit may be available to those who qualify.
The IRS began taking tax returns on January 24, and to get this money, you must claim the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit on your 2021 income tax return.
You must know the whole amount of their third-round Economic Impact Payment, including any Plus-Up Payments, to claim the credit.
