Everyone always celebrates when they receive a cash infusion. That is why the United States government added the stimulus check system last year. Despite this, many citizens did not receive the full amount they were supposed to receive, and that is because the stimulus checks from the third mailing have already run out. However, millions of citizens may not have these checks.
But there is no need to despair about this, as we still have time to claim these stimulus checks. To do so, we must follow a procedure that will help us to finally obtain the amount of money destined. The best thing about these cases is that the IRS has open communication channels to contact them directly.
Even so, many citizens do not know that their stimulus checks received are actually less than they should be. So sometimes it is a good idea to contact an advisor to help confirm that this is not the case. It is surprising how many cases the money a citizen should receive is not sent in full.
How much is the stimulus check reimbursement?
If we qualify, the check can be up to $1,400. This check is only a one-time direct check, so no one should expect a monthly stimulus check, as with Social Security.
Remember that the amount of the check depends on the taxes paid and the money paid in. If you have filed your return on time, the IRS will pay you the check. This process is automatic and always happens in case the citizen really deserves it.
Why haven’t we received the full amount of the check?
The American Rescue Plan Act occurred during the year 2021. Stimulus checks related to this plan were sent out throughout the year. There were three checks in total and in the third round of payments they were up to $1,400 per individual.
But the flaw in the reinstatement of the money for some filers is in that the IRS based the payment on the number of dependents on the 2019 or 2020 tax return. This means that the information could have changed by 2021, so there is a chance that some of the money due back to many citizens may not have been.
Therefore, if your family has increased in the last year, you may be able to make a direct claim and thus get a larger stimulus check in 2023. Remember that you can contact the IRS through the telephone number 800-829-1040 and that any of their employees will be able to help you solve your problem.
