Economic Impact Payments are funds to help people during the coronavirus pandemic.

Check the Status of Your Third Economic Impact Payment

All Third Economic Impact Payments must be issued by Dec. 31, 2021 in accordance with the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, signed into law on March 11, 2021.

The IRS mailed Notice 1444-C to people who received a third Economic Impact Payment. You should keep this letter with your tax year 2021 records.

Didn't Get the Full Third Payment? Claim the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit

You may be eligible to claim a Recovery Rebate Credit on your 2021 federal tax return if you didn't get a third Economic Impact Payment or got less than the full amount.

In early 2022, we'll send Letter 6475 to the address we have on file for you confirming the total amount of your third Economic Impact Payment and any plus-up payments you received for tax year 2021. You will need this information to accurately calculate your 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit when you file your 2021 federal tax return in 2022.

Didn’t Get the Full First and Second Payments? Claim the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit

If you didn’t get the full amount of the first or second Economic Impact Payments, you may be eligible to claim the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit by filing a 2020 tax return. The third Economic Impact Payment will not be used to calculate the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit.
