Whoever claimed the dependent most recently will receive the stimulus check. However, the spouse who claims the child on the 2020 tax return may be able to claim up to $500 on that return. The dependent must be age 16 or younger. If the child was born in 2020, the rules are different.
Those who used the Non-Filers tool by the deadline to provide information about any qualifying children, but did not get the additional $500 payment together with their initial EIP, will be paid in early August.
