You’re not alone if you’re looking for your third stimulation check.
Cynthia Lucchetta said she went to the IRS payment tracker and found out she was entitled for the $1400 third stimulus payment, but that was months ago.
“It would make me feel better if I knew, ‘Oh sure, so many other people have received the same thing,’ but I can’t seem to locate anyone who has,” Lucchetta said. “It’s quite aggravating.”
There is a credit line for economic payments and recovery rebates, however according to the IRS letter, only the first and second payments have been made. As a result, it’s safe to presume that the third payment is still being processed.
It’s also possible that you didn’t get this third payment since your 2020 tax return is still being processed, according to the IRS website. According to widespread reports, the epidemic has caused a backlog of approximately 8.5 million individual tax filings.
The IRS’s toll-free number is 1-800-919-9835. When you call, you’ll be given the option of listening to automated messages or waiting to speak with a live person. To connect with an agent, you must first listen to the recorded content.
It’s also possible that you’ll be able to track down your money. A 3911 form must be completed and sent to the IRS. The form is known as the Taxpayer Statement Regarding Refund. According to the IRS, you should next put “EIP3” on the top of the form (EIP stands for Economic Impact Payment).
Fill out the form, making sure to select the box for “individual” as the type of return when completing item 7 under section 1. After that, select “2021” as the tax year. In the “Date Filed” field, leave it blank. Both you and your spouse must sign the paper if you’re married.
According to the IRS, you should not seek a payment trace in order to determine your eligibility or validate the amount.
If you don’t get the stimulus, the IRS says you can claim a recovery rebate credit on your next year’s tax returns.
