Economic stimulus payment

Level 7

I've run into two issues while playing with 2020 software:

1) One elderly client threw out a "tacky" envelope that had her stimulus check, thinking it was a political ad. Should I put down a zero on line 13 of the Worksheet for the stimulus payment received? It was likely received but not cashed.

2) Another client had a child born in 2020, and the software is crediting her with an additional $500. Is this correct?

Ive read that checks that went uncashed will be canceled, so 0 would be the proper entry.

Yes, if they had a baby in 2020, they do get that extra $500.
