Economic Impact Payments
No, the stimulus payments will not reduce your 2020 tax refund. No, the stimulus payments will not impact your other benefits. At the same time, the IRS’s Get My Payment tool is now up and running, so those who haven’t seen their stimulus funds come in yet can go online and check the status of their payments.
If your bank account information changed, you cannot update that information on the IRS Get My Payment tool. You can use the “Get My Payment” online tool to confirm your bank account is on file and check the status of your payment.
This includes individuals with low or no earnings who normally don’t file taxes. The IRS is using 2019 tax returns to gauge people’s incomes; 2018 tax returns are used as a Plan B. So long as someone filed their taxes in past years, the IRS should have access to these accounts.
So if you’re behind on child support, the government can garnish your check, USA Today reports. One was deposited into my bank, and the other was an actual physical check. I have friends who received no check whatsoever, and they were furious that I received more than one.
Will I receive two stimulus payments this time around as well? Most Americans, that are eligible for the payments, will receive them via direct deposit.
This means your payment will not impact the benefits you receive now or in the future. You could receive up to $1,200 for yourself ($2,400 for a married couple) and an additional $500 for each dependent child.
In the first round of stimulus checks, payments phased out at $136,500. The new $600 checks are based on 2019 tax returns, while the first round of checks were based on either 2018 or 2019 filings. In addition to expanded unemployment benefits and funding to assist renters who face eviction, the bill will issue economic impact payments — also called stimulus checks — of up to $600 to eligible individuals.
So if you set up direct deposit on a past tax return, you should have gotten your direct cash payment in your on-file bank account by about April 15. If you’re still waiting on your first stimulus check, Goldstein suggested electronically filing your 2020 tax return as soon as possible. So if you received a first stimulus check based on your 2018 return and your income went up in 2019, you could see a reduced or no stimulus payment.
Keep in mind that while the stimulus payment is not taxed, unemployment benefits are subject to federal income taxes and some state income taxes. If you receive Social Security benefits or Supplemental Security Income , you don’t need to file a tax return.
For reference, the majority of the first stimulus check recipients have received their payment via direct deposit. That leaves anyone getting a stimulus check in the mail last in line, especially if they have a high AGI. Unfortunately, that meant some joint stimulus checks sent to both the living spouse and the deceased one were cancelled, too.
