What is the Recovery Rebate Credit?

The Recovery Rebate Credit (RRC) was a stimulus payment in 2021 (and is also sometimes referred to as the third Economic Impact Payment or EIP3). Since there weren't any stimulus payments issued by the government in 2022, you cannot claim RRC/EIP on your 2022 tax return.

However, if you are missing an EIP/stimulus payment from 2021 or 2020, you will need to file a tax return for the year in which you did not receive it. Our partners can help you file a prior year return, just ask!
