IRS Stimulus Payments Timeline
A Quick and Simple Overview
We aimed to create a comprehensive timeline, as shown below, that we will keep updating as new Acts are signed into law.
If you were eligible and did not receive your stimulus payment through the CARES Act or Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, you can still claim for it retroactively when you are filing your federal tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service for 2020 through the Recovery Rebait Credit. The deadline to file has been extended to May 17, 2021.
With the pandemic’s economic damage easing, and people getting vaccinated and returning to their job offices, there may be little light of a fourth stimulus check, but if anything is confirmed, we will be sure to update our timeline on this page.
