Stimulus Check 2022: Did You Miss the Deadline to File a Claim for Child Tax Credit Money?

It was far too late by November 17 to file a claim for any unclaimed Stimulus Checks or child tax credit (CTCP); but, this does not mean you will never receive the monies. Even if the IRS Free Pay arrangement has been ended for the remainder of the year, you can still claim any funds owed to you when you file your taxes in 2023.

Almost 9 million people who have not yet gotten their Stimulus Checks did not file a tax return this year because they were not required to do so or because they needed more time. The IRS established eligibility for each of these rewards based on tax returns.
