I mailed my taxes in April and still haven't received my refunded. Status said information not available, although a report I managed to get said it's received it in Oct. and processed it the same month but still no refund.

I realize that this is a late answer, but hopefully these answers may help

(A) except for the most current completed tax year, the IRS will issue a paper check, rather than using direct deposit. Example: if the calendar year is now 2021, the most recently completed tax year is 2020. A refund for tax year 2020 would be by direct deposit. A refund for tax year 2019, or earlier, that is not yet processed will be paid on a paper check

(B) if you filed an amended return, or a paper return, of the return is flagged due to an error in the return, the IRS has to process that return manually through the data entry process. This takes extra time. The estimates I read are that 25 million returns from tax year 2019 were still unprocessed as of 1/1/2021

(C) the IRS is not trying to steal your money. The bottlenecks are that: there were three stimulus checks to be processed; there was/is a pandemic (with restrictions on where people physically work); and, for the past four years, at least, the budgets for the IRS has been cut. Both for personnel and technology

(D) you can claim any undelivered stimulus payment as a credit for your 2020 tax year

(E) if you are owed a refund for a prior year, you may get interest added to your refund.

(We got our 2018 refund a couple of months ago, our 2020 refund about a week ago, and we are still waiting for our 2019 refund)

missing 3rd stimulus check

Still haven't received my 3rd stimulus check or the unemployment rebate. Can't get any info from the IRS phone calls or on their web site. Received my tax refund 2 weeks after submitting it. Not sure what to do next unemployment coming to an end soon. Their web site get my payment shows nothing. It looks like i will have to wait until I do my 2021 taxes in April. Good luck to all .

Why I haven't received any of my stimulus checks?

Why I haven't received any of my stimulus checks. A few years ago I had identity theft where they had received and cashed my tax return check. So as a result the IRS assigned me PTIN num and I can't seem to access it. Any suggestions as to how I can get through this? #stimulus

Nope that's not the reason. Had to do with my identity theft and there is no reason why I wouldn't have qualified

The next round of stimulus checks could look a lot different than the first two

It seems as though there are a handful of important differences between the third stimulus payment and the first two, including:

  • The base amount of money
  • The amount of money families receive
  • Eligibility criteria
  • The tax season in which the payments are based (2020 versus 2019)
  • Child support payments may or may not be taken
  • Earlier payments could be retroactively increased

What are your thoughts about the third #stimulus payment??
