For married couples in which one spouse does not have a valid Social Security Number, the spouse with a valid Social Security Number is eligible for a stimulus check based on the bill the US government passed on December 27, 2020.

什么是调整后的总收入?

Adjusted gross income is a number found on your tax return (Line 8b of the 2019 1040 tax form). It is the money you receive (wages, child support, interest, etc.) minus some specific costs, like student loan interest or alimony.

How do I get my stimulus check?

The IRS will use information from your 2019 or 2018 tax return to calculate your payment amount. Economic Impact Payments (stimulus checks) will be deposited directly into the same bank account used for your tax return. The IRS will mail a paper check to tax filers who did not provide a bank account number when they filed taxes and who did not provide updated banking information before May 13th. Some people may receive a prepaid debit card from the government. Do not throw this away! Learn more about how to activate it at www.consumerfinance.gov/about-us/blog/economic-impact-payment-prepaid-card.

People receiving Social Security (retirement, survivors, and disability), veterans benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Railroad Retirement benefits who should have received the stimulus check automatically but who haven’t received it should file a 2020 tax return to claim the Recovery Rebate Credit.

If you have not filed taxes or do not need to file taxes, you can use the Tax Help page to figure out what to do next. You may want to get a bank account first to get a direct deposit check directly to your account. Paper checks could take longer.

When will I get my stimulus check?

The IRS started making payments the week of April 13, 2020.

If you have not filed taxes for 2019 yet, the deadline was extended until July 15th. If you do not owe the IRS or the State of Illinois any taxes, you can file taxes after the July 15 filing deadline without a penalty. 

Those who don't need to file taxes had until November 21, 2020, to submit their payment information to the IRS using the non-filers site in order to get their stimulus payments by the end of 2020.

Use the IRS Get My Payment app to check the status of your payment. You will be asked to click okay to confirm that you are an authorized user. Information is updated every 24 hours, so you can check again the next day if information is not available.

How do I know if my payment has been sent?

Use the IRS Get My Payment app to check the status of your payment. You'll be asked to click okay to confirm that you are an authorized user. Some people have had to check daily to get updated information.

如果我没有任何收入, 会怎么样?

Those who don't have any income had until November 21, 2020, to submit their information to the IRS using the non-filers site in order to get their stimulus payments by the end of 2020.

If you didn’t submit your payment information to the IRS by November 21, 2020, file your 2020 tax return to receive your stimulus check by claiming the Recovery Rebate Credit.

我的纳税申报表上有人没有社会安全号码

For married couples in which one spouse does not have a valid Social Security Number, the spouse with a valid Social Security Number is eligible for a stimulus check based on the bill signed into law on December 27, 2020. This is a change from the original language of the bill passed in the spring of 2020. The eligible spouse should be able to claim the first stimulus check on their 2020 taxes.

If you have a dependent child under the age of 17 who does not have a valid Social Security Number, then that child will not qualify you for the $500 dependent payment.

The City of Chicago, Open Society Foundation, and The Resurrection Project have created the Chicago Resiliency Fund for people who are ineligible for stimulus checks. You can receive $1,000 from the Fund if you reside in Chicago. You can check the Fund's 网页 了解该基金何时接受申请. 钱花得很快, 因此您之后可能不得不返回该网站, 了解该基金何时再次接受申请.

如果我支付子女抚养费, 会怎么样? 我将获得补助吗?

You can still receive a payment. However, child support debt will be taken out of your payment.

Are college students eligible for payments?

College students who are not considered dependents are eligible. Generally, college students who are under 24, attend full-time, and receive significant financial support from their parents are considered dependents. These students are not eligible.

I am currently or was recently incarcerated. Am I eligible?

Current or previous incarceration does not affect your eligibility.

Will this impact my public benefits like food stamps or TANF?

不会. 因为与任何退税一样, 这些补助将不会不利于您获取公共福利的资格. 该补助也不会影响您的福利金额.

What if the payment is sent to the wrong bank account?

If the bank account that the IRS is depositing the stimulus payment into is now closed, the bank will reject the deposit. The IRS will then mail a paper check to the address it has on file for you.

If you have moved since you last filed a return with the IRS, you'll need to make sure the United States Postal Service (USPS) forwards your mail to the right address: Change Your Address with USPS to make sure you receive your stimulus check at your current address.

Also, you can attempt to track your stimulus check using the USPS Informed Delivery tool.

What if my payment check is being mailed to the wrong address?

If you have moved since you last filed a return with the IRS, you'll need to make sure the United States Postal Service (USPS) has your current address. Change Your Address with USPS so they can forward your mail to the correct address.

Also, you can attempt to track your stimulus check using the USPS Informed Delivery tool.

 

我正在使用“获取我的补助”应用程序, 但收到“补助状态不可用”消息. 该消息是什么意思?

根据美国国税局, 有一些原因可能会导致您看到此消息

  • 您需要提交纳税申报表, 但是:
    • 国税局尚未完成处理您的 2019 年纳税申报表
    • 该应用程序还没有您的数据; 美国国税局 (IRS) 正在努力添加更多数据, 以允许更多人使用它
  • 您通常不会提交纳税申报表, 并且您使用了国税局非申报者网站, 但国税局尚未处理您的申报表
  • 您不符合补助条件 

If you filed your tax return by mail, it will take the IRS longer than usual to process the return.

我正在使用“获取我的补助”应用程序, 但收到“请稍后重试”消息. 我能做什么?

根据美国国税局, 您被锁定 24 小时的原因可能是:

  • 您输入的信息与国税局记录不匹配. 出于安全原因, 国税局在24小时内将每个用户限制为三次失败尝试.
  • You have already accessed the system five times within 24 hours.  The IRS allows each user 5 logins per day to make sure their system is not overwhelmed with too many requests.

经过 24 小时后, 您将可以访问该应用程序. 请勿与国税局联系以寻求锁定方面的帮助. 锁定将仅在 24 小时后解除.

What should I do if my stimulus payment is the wrong number?

There are a few reasons why your stimulus payment could be lower than what you expected. Some are included below: 

  • If you haven’t filed your 2019 tax return or the IRS hasn’t finished reviewing your 2019 return, your payment will be based on your 2018 tax return. If you earned more money or had fewer dependents in 2018, your payment may be lower. 
  • In order to receive $500 per eligible dependent, the dependent must be under the age of 17 and meet other qualifications. 
  • Past-due child support can be taken out of the stimulus payment.

The IRS released more information here.

If you are eligible for more than what you received, file your 2020 tax return and claim the Recovery Rebate Credit to receive any missing amounts.
