I am US Citizen married with foreign spouse and I filed taxes married filing jointly with my spouse ITIN number. Our joint income is less than $50,000. Will I get $1200 or $2400?

What the current version of the stimulus bill says:

“Everyone earning up to $75,000 in adjusted gross income — the income on your tax return — and who has a Social Security number will receive a $1,200 payment.” (Source: AP)

Since your spouse does not have a Social Security Number and the bill specifically requires an adult to have a security number valid for work, that disqualifies him/her from being a beneficiary of the stimulus check.

 
Unfortunately, you’ll only get $1,200.

I’m very curious about this as well.  I’m in the same situation, MFJ and spouse has an ITIN.  The 2008 stimulus specifically excluded people filing with ITINs AND their spouses, I really hope that isn’t the case with this stimulus!  The positive is I believe this stimulus will work as a 2020 tax credit, if you don’t receive the money now but your spouse enters the US and receives a SSN by the 2020 tax filing deadline (either April 15, 2020 or October 15, 2020 with an extension), you will receive a $2400 stimulus  tax credit when you file your 2020 taxes.  So we will see...

Unfortunately no. It even states on the website that if a US citizen with an SSN FILES jointly with someone with an ITIN they do not qualify and neither do their children.i have called several senators about this because we should atleast get it as well as our kids. The only stipulation is those In the armed forces

Actually you won’t even get 1200 . It states that even a spouse with a valid SSN does not qualify nor do children if they file with someone with an ITIN. I’ve called and spoke to many people and it was the same  with the previous stimulus checks.

If a US citizen files married joint tax return they are NOT eligible for stimulus and neither are children on that tax return.

This is what I was worried about.  Extremely unfair for those of us who are US citizens and choose to obtain ITINs  and file jointly with our non-resident spouses, which the IRS ALLOWS us to do... sigh.

I know and I’ve been pretty pissy about the entire thing. I’m surprised Democrats didn’t fight for this seeing they are for undocumented people. I heard 1 person say something about it during the house vote today and he was cut off. I’m going to keep messaging the White House, the senators  and do what I can. We should make a change.org to atleast be able to get it for ourselves or our children who are citizens. Hell even DACA gets it. We are being ostracized. I’ll do what I can. Please help me and email Trump and your senators.

Great idea, I will work on it tomorrow!  At the very least those of us who are citizens with valid SSNs that live and work here in the US should get a payment, whether or not our spouses have ITINs, what the hell? My husband doesn’t reside in the US and we are currently applying for his visa, we’ve done nothing wrong.  Ridiculous...

Hi,

 

It sounds like having a SSN is the key. My wife has a SSN, and we already filed our 2019 return jointly, so it sounds like we should get the $2400, even though she doesn't have a Green Card yet, is that correct? (and our joint income is under $150K)

Yes, SSN is key and sounds like you will get the full $2400.
