The total amount of the rescue plan was 1.8 trillion USD. The bill gave away so many important things to the needy. It included round three of the checks, provided for the expansion of the “Child Tax Credit,” and also gave a push to the unemployment benefits. Up until now, the IRS has provided stimulus funds of around 395 billion USD.

The stimulus payments have been issued by the IRS for a total of three months. However, this does not mean that all the people who are entitled to receive it have already got it. In case anybody has not received the stimulus checks, there are some procedures that are to be followed. Nobody will have to pay the penalty for filing their taxes after the deadline if there is no money to be paid to the IRS.
