Are you a non-U.S. resident alien? We’ll tell you if you could get a second stimulus check
A second stimulus check has not yet been approved, but all legislators agree that one should be given.
When the CARES Act was passed, it was established that individuals who are qualified resident aliens with a valid Social Security number could receive a stimulus check.
However, the story is very different for nonresident aliens, as these individuals were not eligible to receive the first stimulus check, according to the IRS.
Therefore, there is a high probability that, should a second stimulus check be approved, it will not fall into the hands of non-resident aliens either.
Similarly, it should be noted that single individuals with a gross annual income of more than $99,000 may also be ineligible for a stimulus check. In other words, if you earn more than this amount, you may not get the support.
Couples who file a joint return and between them have a gross annual income of $198,000 may not get this benefit either.
So, if you’re in these situations, there’s a good chance that the IRS won’t send you any money.
Who might NOT receive a second stimulus check
If you meet these characteristics, it is unlikely that the IRS will send you any money.
Negotiations to approve a second relief package are still ongoing. In fact, the White House has just proposed a $1.8 billion package, within which a second stimulus check would be delivered.
And while this proposal has not yet passed the legislature, both Democrats and Republicans agree that more money needs to be delivered directly to the people through stimulus checks.
Most experts agree that the eligibility requirements for deciding who will receive a new stimulus check would be virtually the same as for the first one.
Therefore, if you want to know who will NOT receive this money, these would be the people who have the following characteristics
- Individuals who have had an annual income of more than $99,000 per year. That is, if you earned more than this money, you will not get a stimulus check, as reported by CNet.
- Couples who, between the two people who make up the family, have an annual income of more than $198,000.
So, if you are in these cases and you earn more than these amounts, there is a huge chance that just as you didn’t get the first stimulus check, you won’t get the second one either.
