Questions & Answers

How do I get my stimulus (EIP) payments?

If you didn't receive your Economic Impact (stimulus) Payments (EIP), you can get them by claiming the Recovery Rebate Credit on your tax returns. The first and second stimulus payments can be claimed on your 2020 tax return, and the third stimulus payment can be claimed on your 2021 tax return.

We recommend that you first verify the amount (if any) of EIP that you received.

How do I know how much Economic Impact Payment (EIP) I received?

After you have correct EIP information, you can prepare your returns. For 2021, answer the questions about your third payment here: Menu Path: Deductions/Credits > Common Deductions/Credits > EIP Information

If you need to file your 2020 return to claim the first and second payments, go to the FreeTaxUSA Prior Year Tax Return page . From there, you can choose to file your 2020 tax return.
