You should not call the IRS about this but consult the stimulus letter sent by President Biden in the mail, according to CNET.
The letter, officially called Notice 1444-C, should've arrived 15 days after your check to confirm your payment.
It shows the amount you were paid and how you received the money.
The IRS also advises Americans to keep their letter ahead of submitting their 2021 tax returns.
Americans should double-check the amount they got by using the stimulus calculator.

The IRS has stated that these supplemental funds are "for people who earlier in March received payments based on their 2019 tax returns but are eligible for a new or larger payment based on their recently processed 2020 tax returns".
Americans may receive a plus-up payment if their income dropped last year compared to 2019 or if a dependent has been added to their tax return.
The IRS may have used your 2019 tax returns rather than last year’s returns to work out your payment.
If this is the case, then the agency will send Americans a separate payment to cover the difference.3Over 169million stimulus payments have been sent out since Congress approved the American Rescue PlanCredit: The Mega Agency
The IRS' Get My Payment app will not help Americans who find themselves in this scenario.
It should only be used for tracking the status of your stimulus check.
Only Americans earning $75,000 or less are eligible for the third round of stimulus checks.
This means single Americans earning $80,000 or more will not receive additional stimulus cash.

Chrissy Teigen returns to Instagram with lengthy apology for bullying past
More On: chrissy teigen After Chrissy Teigen bullying scandal, Lindsay Lohan rises again Chrissy Teigen’s regrettable Twitter history Chrissy Teigen back on Instagram after cyberbullying scandal Chrissy Teigen drops out of Netflix’s ‘Never Have I Ever’ amid Courtney Stodden drama
All of Chrissy Teigen is sorry.
The model, 35, returned to Instagram with a lengthy message to apologize for her past cyberbullying of Courtney Stodden, among others, on Monday. The post is also available to read on Medium.
“Hi all. It has been a VERY humbling few weeks,” she began. “I know I’ve been quiet, and lord knows you don’t want to hear about me, but I want you to know I’ve been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate ‘sit here and think about what you’ve done.’”
“Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past,” she continued. “As you know, a bunch of my old awful (awful, awful) tweets resurfaced. I’m truly ashamed of them. As I look at them and understand the hurt they caused, I have to stop and wonder: How could I have done that?”
She then addressed her bullying of Stodden, who now uses they/them pronouns, saying, “I’ve apologized publicly to one person, but there are others — and more than just a few — who I need to say I’m sorry to. I’m in the process of privately reaching out to the people I insulted. It’s like my own version of that show ‘My Name is Earl!’ I understand that they may not want to speak to me. I don’t think I’d like to speak to me. (The real truth in all of this is how much I actually cannot take confrontation.) But if they do, I am here and I will listen to what they have to say, while apologizing through sobs.”
Stodden, 26, accused Teigen of telling them to kill themselves in private DMs after publicly tweeting that Stodden should “take ‘a dirt nap.'” Teigen publicly apologized to Stodden in May, but Stodden claimed they never heard from her privately.
Teigen continued her essay by acknowledging that she was a “troll” on social media whose behavior was uncalled for.
She explained, “In reality, I was insecure, immature and in a world where I thought I needed to impress strangers to be accepted. If there was a pop culture pile-on, I took to Twitter to try to gain attention and show off what I at the time believed was a crude, clever, harmless quip. I thought it made me cool and relatable if I poked fun at celebrities.”
“Now, confronted with some of the things that I said, I cringe to my core,” she admitted. “I’ll honestly get sharp, stabbing pains in my body, randomly remembering my asshole past, and I deserve it. Words have consequences and there are real people behind the Twitter handles I went after. I wasn’t just attacking some random avatar, but hurting young women — some who were still girls — who had feelings. How could I not stop and think of that?”
She then confessed she wanted to be better for her daughter Luna, 5, and her son Miles, 3.
“John tells me almost every day how much our daughter Luna reminds him of me,” she wrote. “Every day, I try to make sure she’s all the best parts of me, all the things I aspire to be all the time, but fail at sometimes. And we preach kindness to her and Miles every chance we get. Will they eventually realize there is some hypocrisy there? I certainly do. But I hope they recognize my evolution.”
She added, “My goal is to be so good that my kids will think this was all a fairy tale. Not the fake good. The good that has the best intentions, the good who wakes up wanting to make her friends, family, her team and fans as happy as possible. The good who will still fuck up in front of the world but rarely, and never not growing only more good from it.”
Her husband — and “All of Me” singer — John Legend simply commented “❤️❤️❤️❤️” on her Instagram post.
She concluded the message by asking for “patience and tolerance” as he works on herself through therapy and other avenues.Filed under celebrity social media , chrissy teigen , 6/14/21
