Missed the Economic Stimulus Payment? You May Be Eligible for the Recovery Rebate Credit

Recovery Rebate Credit Information Center
The recovery rebate credit is a one-time benefit for people who didn't receive the full economic stimulus payment last year and whose circumstances may have changed, making them eligible now for some or all of the unpaid portion.

Generally, a credit adds to the amount of a tax refund or decreases the amount of taxes owed. Therefore, the amount you receive for the recovery rebate credit will be included as part of your refund, as shown on your tax return. Unlike the 2008 economic stimulus payment, it will not be issued as a separate check.
