When you claim the Recovery Rebate Credit on your 2020 tax return, you’ll get what you’re owed for the first two Economic Impact Payments as part of your tax refund. If you’re eligible for a third payment, you’ll get that separately after your return is processed.
When filing, you may also find that you’re eligible for other tax credits, such as the Child Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit. Economic Impact Payments are different from most other tax benefits because people can get them even if they have little or no income. don’t have a permanent address, or have no bank account.
