Federal stimulus money was provided to American families in 2021 to help them deal with the economic impact caused by the continuing coronavirus pandemic. This year, all Americans will be eligible for a $1,400 stimulus check, and those entitled to benefits for the third round of stimulus checks issued last year but still haven’t received them will start receiving this money. To receive these checks, eligible taxpayers must file their tax returns in 2021, according to The Fool.

Tax returns can be used to claim stimulus funds that have not been received. For its part, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently said it would start processing 2021 tax returns on January 24, 2022. There are a few weeks left where individuals can take action if they are owed money.

In order to determine how much money each parent should have received, the federal government used its 2020 tax returns. As of the end of the 2020 tax year, anyone who had a child would be eligible to claim the money owed, as per The Fool.
Payments are typically processed within 21 days after receiving a tax return by the IRS. The IRS has set up an online payment tracking system for those who are eligible but have yet to receive their stimulus payment.
