Economic Impact payment

Brenda M

I have input the amount received for both economic impact payments into screen 38.2, but Lacerte is only showing one and as a result computing a credit and refund for $600.  I deleted the payments and reinput again just in case.  Is anyone else having this occur?  This is my first return qualifying this year.  What am I doing wrong?

There are taxpayer & spouse columns - potentially 1,200 and 1,200 each PLUS any amount for children

There is the same for 2nd payment in 2021 - potentially 600 and 600 each PLUS any amount for children

Children did not get payment, the parents did.

Yes, knew I was doing something wrong.  Only input $600 for first payment.

Thank you
