Still waiting for your $1,400 stimulus payment? How to request an IRS trace to track it down



When is it time to start worrying that you’ve not received the third stimulus check that you’re eligible for? Since March, the IRS has made more than 165 million payments — and is sending out a new batch each week. If you think your $1,400 payment is missing — maybe you received a letter telling you the IRS sent your payment but you’ve not received it — you may need help trying to track it down. The same goes for the first and second payments from 2020.

It’s possible there’s an issue with your check, or the IRS could have the wrong mailing address on file. Another reason why you may want to track down your payment is if you received less than the amount expected and you’re owed a “plus-up” payment. By the way, in that case, you do not need to file an amended tax form.

We’ll explain how to request an IRS payment trace or file for a recovery rebate credit, even if you don’t normally file taxes. If you filed your 2020 tax return and still need your refund money, here’s how to track it down. If you received unemployment benefits in 2020, you could be due for a big tax break. Also, here’s what we know about a possible fourth stimulus payment and how much of the $3,600 per kid you could get with the child tax credit starting in July. This story gets frequent updates.

This chart shows when you can and should request an IRS payment trace, which is designed to hunt down a stimulus check the agency says it sent.
