According to the latest guidelines issued by the IRS, Parents who welcomed their one or more children in 2020 may receive up to $1,100 in extra stimulus money per child.

IRS spokesman Raphael Tulino talked to the media and said that eligible parents were allowed to receive $500 per child from April’s first stimulus rollout and another $600 per child from the second, most recent stimulus law.

Many parents missed out on the extra cash because Congress used 2019, or 2018, tax returns to check eligibility, leaving the IRS clueless about the children born in 2020.

Eligible parents need to fill out the Recovery Rebate Credit form, Tulino said.

IRS released a statement saying, "For people who received a partial Economic Impact Payment [stimulus check], they can take the Recovery Rebate Credit for any remaining amount they’re eligible."

President Donald Trump approved the second pandemic relief package of $900 billion into law on Dec. 27 ending days of trauma over his refusal to accept the bipartisan deal that delivered long-sought cash to businesses and individuals and averted a federal government shutdown amid an eleventh-hour demand for larger, $2,000 stimulus checks.

American adults who earn less than $75,000 will get a $600 stimulus check, while couples who earn less than $150,000 will receive $1,200.
