First Stimulus Payment Calculator

Attention: This calculator is for the first stimulus payment or EIP paid until October 2020. Access the new calculator for the second stimulus calculator here. Plus read all the details about the second stimulus payment procedures.

  • The tax calculator below allows you to estimate your share of the First Corona Crisis related stimulus payments issued to most American taxpayers. If you did not receive this payment you can claim the money via the Recovery Rebate Credit on your 2020 tax return due on April 15, 2021.

Most taxpayers had to either have a 2018 or 2019 Tax Year Return on record with the IRS. If you have no other taxable income but Social Security Income, you most likely do not need a tax return on file with the IRS. Before you begin the tool have either your 2018 or 2019 Adjusted Gross Income available. You will find this on Line 7 on your 2018 Tax Return or Line 8b on your 2019 Tax Return. Many taxpayers who did not file a 2018 or 2019 Tax Return were asked to file a non-filer or stimulus return. This however created confusion as many regular taxpayers filed a non-filer return for 2019 only to find out that their regular 2019 return got rejected when they filed; as result they had to file a tax amendment. The IRS considered a 2019 non-filer or stimulus return as a regular 2019 tax return.
