We’re reviewing the tax provisions of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, signed into law on March 11, 2021. If you qualify, you may opt to have the IRS figure your tax and certain credits on Form 1040 or Form 1040-SR. This option is available even if you're not required to file a tax return but would like to request a refund of taxes paid or would like to claim certain tax credits, such as the earned income credit or the tax credit for the elderly or the disabled. For more information on having the IRS figure your tax and credits, including information you should provide to the IRS and circumstances in which the IRS won't figure your tax, refer to Chapter 13 of Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax for Individuals. After the IRS figures your tax, you'll either receive a refund if you overpaid your tax or a bill if you underpaid your tax. If you receive a bill, you can avoid interest and late-payment penalties if you pay the amount due by the later of 1) 21 business days after the date of the bill (10 business days if the bill is for $100), or 2) the due date of the return. Note that you may be charged a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax, if applicable. Refer to Topic No. 306, Penalty for Underpayment of Estimated Tax for more information.
