There are a number of reasons why an individual may not have received the check, Torres explained, in a podcast with the Rio Grande Guardian.

“If you did not file a tax return, this may the reason you have not received your stimulus check,” Torres said.

“By filing as a 2020 return, this may result in you getting your payment.”

Torres listed other reasons in the podcast.

The Texas Taxpayer Assistance Project is a division of Texas RioGrande Legal Aid.
