The federal government donated a staggering amount of money to Americans in 2021 – tens of billions of dollars, in fact, through more than half a dozen stimulus checks aimed at helping people overcome the pandemic. That year-long river of money that flows easily has made 2021 the year of stimulus control. And while there will soon be no more of these payments from the federal government, last year everything had such a big impact that the ripples will still be felt during this year’s fiscal season.

We’ll break down why and how below, including new ways people can benefit this year from the 2021 stimulus efforts.

When does the tax season start?

First of all, a very important note from the IRS. The agency announced that this year’s tax season will begin on Monday, January 24. That’s when the IRS will begin accepting and processing tax year 2021 returns. “The January 24 start date for individual tax return filers allows the IRS time to do the scheduling and testing that is critical to ensuring that IRS systems run smoothly, ”the IRS said in a press release. “The updated scheduling helps ensure that eligible people can claim the correct amount of the child tax credit.”

That’s after comparing their 2021 prepaid credits. And they can also apply for the remaining stimulus money as a refund credit for recovery when they file their 2021 tax return.

It is also in this sense that people should be aware of one way last year’s stimulus law could get them a bigger payback soon.

The impact of the stimulus law on tax refunds

This was stated by Andy Phillips, director of the Tax Institute of H&R Block Fortune that parents who welcomed a newborn in 2021 could be eligible for a rebate this year of up to $ 5,000. This is between a stimulus amount of $ 1,400 for dependents and then last year’s child tax credit up to $ 3,600.

Parents could benefit from both as long as their new child has arrived by the end of 2021. “For most families,” notes the magazine, “$ 1,400 stimulus checks have already been sent.” But why are checks an advance on a tax credit? “Eligible Parents Can Get Paid For Their 2021 Infants When They Submit Taxes (This Year).”

letters from the Revenue Agency

In the meantime, the IRS is reminding everyone to check their mail for revenue agency correspondence soon.

The IRS began sending “Letter 6419, 2021 Advance Child Tax Credit” just a few weeks ago. And keep doing it this month. “The letter contains important information that can help ensure that the return is accurate,” according to the IRS. “Individuals who have received prepayments (child tax credit) can also check the amount of payments received using the CTC Update Portal available at IRS.gov.”

By the end of the month, the IRS will begin issuing “Letter 6475, Your Third Impact Payment,” to people who received a third payment in 2021.
