  • If you didn't file in 2018 or 2019, you need to do so before you can qualify. You can file electronically, then you will receive your check whenever the IRS processes your 2018 and 2019 forms. There's no need to panic, just file the forms necessary and wait. No one is receiving their checks faster than anyone else.
  • If your parents can claim you as a dependent you don't qualify anyway. "That said, CBPP recommends low income Americans file a tax return as soon as possible, using the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program for free help with filing." https://www.irs.gov/individuals/free-tax-return-preparation-for-you-by-volunteers https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/30/many-college-students-are-ineligible-for-a-stimulus-relief-check.html
  • I think TurboTax has a free tax advice live chat even if you're not a customer. I'd try that.
