CLEVELAND (WJW) — Some Americans are waiting to hear what lawmakers are doing to push for another stimulus payment, but until then there’s a way you might be eligible for a $1,400 payment, with or without the passed legislation.
- Received a third Economic Impact Payment based on a 2019 tax return or information receive from Social Security Administration, Railroad Retirement Board or Veterans Administration, and
- Were eligible for an additional amount based on their 2020 tax return
That’s good news for anyone with a child born in 2021 who did not receive a third-round Economic Impact Payment for that dependent – because it was based on 2019 or 2020 tax returns.
This also applies to parents and guardians who added a new qualifying dependent to their family in 2021, including a grandparent or other eligible dependent.
