(FoxBusiness.com) — Millions of Americans have already received their $600 stimulus check, but some who are still waiting for the money to arrive will need to file a tax return in order to receive the money.

Under the $900 billion coronavirus relief package that Congress passed at the end of December, the IRS had until Jan. 15 to issue the $600 stimulus payments.

Now that the deadline has passed, Americans who are eligible to receive the money but haven’t yet must claim it as a credit on their 2020 returns.

If you don’t receive the cash payment — or get the wrong amount — then you can claim a Recovery Rebate Credit on your 2020 tax return.

The IRS on Friday opened up Free File, free online tax preparation software, for taxpayers to prepare and file their income tax returns. Americans can also claim their stimulus check using the tool.
