  1. Someone earlier in a response said line 46, and it’s really lines 57 plus line 52. But unless you had HUGE credits on the other lines from 47-55, or your joint AGI was over $ 150,000 so your payment started to phase out, your calculation would be right.

    The IRS announced yesterday that there had been a problem with a number of returns that didn’t get the extra $ 300 for qualifying kids. It sounds like you might have fallen into that issue. If so, you’ll get it, but the other $ 600 will be a paper check, and probably won’t be for a couple months.
