Is it time for you to start getting concerned about the missing stimulus check, even though you qualify for it?

Since March, the IRS has distributed more than 167 million payments, and a new batch of checks is sent out every week.

If you believe that your payment of 1,400 dollars has been misplaced or was never sent, or if you have received a letter from the Internal Revenue Service stating that they have sent your payment but you have not received it, you may require assistance to locate it.

It will be the same for the first and second payments beginning in 2020.

There may be a problem with your check, or the IRS may have the wrong mailing address on file for you.

Another reason why you might want to track down your payment is if the amount you did receive was less than what was expected and you are owed a “plus-up” payment to make up the difference. In that scenario, you do not have to submit an amended tax form because it is not necessary.

Even if you aren’t the type of person who normally files taxes, we’ll walk you through the steps of requesting a payment trace from the IRS or applying for a recovery rebate credit.

If you filed your taxes for the year 2020 and still need the money that was refunded to you, here is how to find it.

You have some leeway to delay taking action at this time because the third stimulus checks are still in the process of being delivered.

But if you didn’t get your first or second check at all, now is the time to take action on the situation. This chart outlines the circumstances under which you are permitted to and ought to submit a request for an IRS payment trace.

This investigation will seek to locate a stimulus check that the IRS claims it has already issued. Read on for a further explanation of the specifics of how a payment trace operates, how to get started with it, and when it should be used.

This schedule remained unchanged for both the first and second payments that were due in 2020. You can no longer use the Get My Payment tool to locate your first or second stimulus and check if it has gone missing since the tool has reached its maximum capacity.

Using the Get My Payment tool, you can quickly determine the status of your third check from the stimulus package.

If the IRS portal indicates that your payment was issued but you haven’t received it within the time frame outlined in the chart located above, you will need to submit a request for a payment trace to get your money.

To use the tool, you will need to input your date of birth, Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), street address, and ZIP or postal code.

Your payment status, whether it has been scheduled, the method of payment (direct deposit or by mail), and the date will be displayed on the portal when you log in.

You may see a different message or even an error. (Here is how to track the check that you mailed through the United States Postal Service.)

You should receive a letter from the agency confirming your payment approximately 15 days after the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sends your third stimulus check (via direct deposit, paper check, or EIP card). These letters regarding the third payment are still being sent out by the IRS.

If you have this letter, which is also referred to as Notice 1444, Your Economic Impact Payment, but you have not yet received your payment, you will be required to make a payment trace request.

Be sure to keep the letter because the information is required for the claim that you intend to submit. (Here is what to do if you lost the letter from the Internal Revenue Service.) The same holds true for both the first and second stimulus checks.

The following instructions are provided by the IRS for completing Form 3911 to receive your third stimulus check:

1. In the top right-hand corner of the form, write “EIP3” (EIP stands for Economic Impact Payment.)

2. Please ensure that all questions regarding your refund that relate to your payment are answered on the form.
