Coronavirus Tax Relief, Recovery Rebate Credit and Economic Impact Payments for Individuals and Families

Find help for individual and families affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Economic Impact Payments

The IRS has issued all first, second and third Economic Impact Payments.

Most eligible people already received their Economic Impact Payments. People who are missing stimulus payments should review the information on the Recovery Rebate Credit page to determine their eligibility to claim the credit for tax year 2020 or 2021.

Securely access your IRS online account to view the total of your first, second and third Economic Impact Payment amounts under the Tax Records page. You can no longer use the Get My Payment application to check your payment status.

Child Tax Credit Payments

There have been important changes to the Child Tax Credit (CTC) that will help many families. The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 expands the CTC for tax year 2021 only. The 2021 Child Tax Credit is up to $3,600 for each qualifying child.

Eligible families, including families in Puerto Rico, can claim the credit through April 15, 2025, by filing a federal tax return—even if they don't normally file and have little or no income.

See the Advance Child Tax Credit 2021 webpage for the most up-to-date information about the credit and filing information. Families in Puerto Rico can check eligibility rules and find more information at Resources and Guidance for Puerto Rico families that may qualify for the Child Tax Credit.
