IRS: Track your stimulus payment if it’s still missing
The 2022 tax season is in full swing, and despite this, some Americans still find themselves waiting for their payment from the IRS.
The IRS began accepting returns this year on January 24, and more than 4 million tax refunds were issued in two weeks.
They may take longer if your return requires further review.

You can no longer use the Get My Payment tool to check the status of your stimulus payment.
If you want to know the amount of your third payment, you will need to consult it in your online account or consult Notice 1444-C.
This notice has been sent detailing your third stimulus payment after it was sent.
In March 2022, people also received letter 6475, which says the same thing.

To claim a missing payment, you will need to claim the recovery rebate credit.
You can calculate this by adding the amount of the third stimulus payment and any additional payments you may have received.
If your payment status is not available, you can safely claim the recovery rebate credit.
