Your federal income taxes won’t be due until May. The IRS is backlogged trying to process all those stimulus payments and is now extending the tax-filing deadline from April 15th to May 17th.
Those who didn’t qualify for the first two stimulus payments because they made too much money in 2019 may qualify for this third payment if they made less in 2020.
If you made less than $75,000 in 2020 and have already filed your taxes, you may not have received your stimulus money yet because the IRS has not had a chance to process your tax return.

“Get My Payment” updates once per day, usually overnight. Please do not call the IRS to inquire about your stimulus.
Also, there may be a fourth stimulus payment. According to Politico, some Democratic members of Congress do not feel a third stimulus check is enough. Two months before the new relief package was signed, 50 Democratic members of the House of Representatives signed a letter asking President Biden to prioritize recurring direct checks instead of one-time stimulus payments.
The letter published by Politico states, “Another one-time round of checks would provide a temporary lifeline, but when that money runs out, families will once again struggle to pay for basic necessities. One more check is not enough during this public health and economic crisis.”
