$3600 Lump Sum Stimulus Checks: How To Receive Payment?

The IRS has said that about 9 million eligible Americans have not yet gotten their payments for pandemic relief.

This month, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) delivered letters to individuals who are eligible for payments but have not yet asked them.

The relief payments were based on a person's tax return, so those who did not have to file taxes or asked for more time were not taken into account.

This meant that millions of Americans, especially those with low incomes, limited internet access, or who are homeless, didn't get relief money.

The US Government Accountability Office says that people who are eligible have until November 15 to fill out a simplified tax return and get their missing payments.

Those who didn't pay their taxes by April 15 had until October 17 to get their checks. The IRS says that people who make less than $73,000 can use the Free File service.

In addition to getting relief payments, Americans can also get tax credits for children that they did not get in 2021.

As a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the amount of the child tax credit increased to $3,600 in the previous tax year.

Families can get $300 for each child younger than 6 years old and $250 for each child between 6 and 17 years old.
