The tool is closed and it will not be available for other payments including the second Economic Impact Payment or the Recovery Rebate Credit. Economic Impact Payments were an advance payment of the Recovery Rebate Credit. You may be eligible to claim the credit by filing a 2020 1040 or 1040-SR for free using the IRS Free File program. These free tax software programs can be used by people who are not normally required to file tax returns but are eligible to claim the credit.
If you submitted your information using this tool by November 21, 2020 or by mail for the first Economic Impact Payment, IRS will use that information to send you the second Economic Impact Payment, if you’re eligible.
Visit GetYourRefund.org through October 1, 2022, to claim your first and second stimulus checks. Visit GetCTC.org through November 15, 2022 to claim your Child Tax Credit and/or your third stimulus check.
You can check your payment status with Get My Payment. Go to IRS.gov Coronavirus Tax Relief and Economic Impact Payments for more information.
Did you miss the deadline to register for the Economic Impact Payments?
If so, you may be eligible for both Economic Impact Payments by filing a 1040 or 1040-SR in 2021 to claim the Recovery Rebate Credit.

Americans have struggled during the pandemic, especially people with kids. The Child Tax Credit is here to help.
The deadline to sign up for monthly Child Tax Credit payments is November 15. The Administration collaborated with a non-profit, Code for America, who has created a non-filer sign-up tool that is easy to use on a mobile phone and also available in Spanish.
