The short answer is, yes – you can still claim stimulus checks if you’ve missed the deadline – and if you’re eligible.

You’re eligible for stimulus payments if:

U.S. residents will receive the Economic Impact Payment of $1,200 for individual or head of household filers, and $2,400 for married filing jointly if they are not a dependent of another taxpayer and have an eligible Social Security number with adjusted gross income up to:

– $75,000 for individuals

– $112,500 for head of household filers

– $150,000 for married couples filing jointly

Also, you would need to consider few things: Are you filing your taxes regularly? (Your last filing is 2019).

If YES, did you file your 2020 US Tax return?

  • If another “YES”, you may file for an amendment and claim the stimulus as recovery rebate.
  • If “NO”, you can just file a regular 2020 return and claim the stimulus as a recovery rebate credit.

If “NO”, when was your last filing?

  • If it’s more than 3 years, you may still be able to claim it by filing under the Streamline Program.
  • If it’s less than 3 years, you may just file a return for the years you’re required to file.
