RECOVERY REBATE CREDIT ELIGIBILITY

You are not eligible for the Recovery Rebate Credit claimed on a 2020 tax return if any of the following applies:

  • You may be claimed as a dependent on another taxpayer's 2020 return (for example, a child or student who may be claimed on a parent's return or a dependent parent who may be claimed on an adult child's return).
  • You do not have a Social Security number that is valid for employment issued before the due date of your 2020 tax return (including extensions). Some exceptions apply for those who file married filing jointly where only one spouse must have a valid Social Security number to claim the credit.
  • You are a nonresident alien.                 
  • You are an estate or trust.
