Reporting your stimulus amounts on your taxes
Updated: Jan 23
This filing year, it is required for both stimulus payments to be reported on your tax return.
The following are ways that your tax preparer can verify the stimulus amount that you received.
IRS Notice 1444
Every person that got a stimulus payment also received a IRS Notice 1444. This was mailed to each recipient and states the amount that was received. If you have the Notice, please include it with your tax papers.
If you did not keep the IRS Notice, you can also show proof of the payment amount received using your bank statements. This will allow your preparer to verify the amount that you are claiming on your tax return.
Please Note: Any incorrect information about your stimulus amount can result in delayed or altered refunds.
