In March, Congress approved new $1,400 stimulus checks through the American Rescue Plan Act.
Those third stimulus payments add to the $1,200 and $600 payments that were approved last year.
Most people should receive their $1,400 stimulus checks and "plus-up" payments, if they're eligible, automatically, according to Erica York, economist at the Tax Foundation.
In the beginning of this year, for example, there were still an estimated 8 million outstanding stimulus checks from the CARES Act that was passed in March 2020, she said.
What's more, you will not owe the IRS a late filing penalty if you are due money back.
