Sooo..Got my stimulus check aaaand I only got one for myself and NOT my spouse amount?? We got married last year (may 2019). I am so confused. I did file my taxes for 2018 and 2019. Obviously I could not file married on the 2018 one, but I did on the 2019 taxes.

Does anyone that is  smart with this stuff tell me why? Also, no, he does NOT have a green card as he came from a K1. We are waiting for his interview since COVID pushed it back, so Lord only knows when that will be now. But he is here as legally as he can possibly be. Its not my fault he doesn't have a GC and regardless we are married, so shouldn't i have gotten the full amount? He does have a social security number that he got in 2019.

 

Maybe they are going off based on 2019 file?

 

Help anyone?? Is there somewhere I can go to file for his check?

When did you file your 2019 return?

 

As an aside,  it's not that he won't get a stimulus payment,  he may not get an advance payment.   Final settlement occurs with your 2020 tax filing

They sent your stimulus check based on your 2018 taxes.......your spouse will have to wait and get a tax credit after filing 2020 taxes next year.

It all depends when you filed 2019 taxes. If you mailed the return in the last month or 2, they're not processing any paper return because of covid-19, so they paid based on your 2018 return.

 

If you e-filed 2019, then you mostly filed after the cutoff.

According to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, non-U.S. citizens with a Social Security number who live and work here, including green card holders and workers using visas such as H-1B and H-2A, are eligible to receive checks.

“Non-resident aliens” who do not have green cards will not receive them.

For what I understand from this info published in the internet, unfortunately your spouse would not receive the stimulus check because he is not a green card holder yet. Being a US citizen or being a green card holder are the only requirements stated (besides the income cap).

Not true. You need to have filed taxes (1040) in 2019 or 2018 with an SSN to be eligible for the advanced rebate. I'm not a green card holder and I received it.

Resident alien and nonresident alien for tax purposes are quite different than a lawful permanent resident.

If they filed married/jointly and he has a SS number he would have been classified as a resident for tax purposes and should have received this payment.

If your husband has a SS#,  and you included that SS# on your 2019 taxes filed this year,  you could go to www.irs.gov and click on the upper right link, "where's my money" or something like that.  you will need your 2019 AGI,  his SS#,  his Birthdate, and his street address (no city, state), and lastly the zip code.  It will say if he is qualified for the stimulus check. if he is, and you have direct deposit, you can enter the routing and checking acct #.  It is updated only once a day, and currently for a few days, they are doing maintenance between 10pm - 1am eastern time.

That is not true. I've filed my return taxes with wife one week before we got the checks (April 10th or so). We've got married last year and this year was first time we filed taxes together.

 

What I would suggest, go to IRS web page and click on the link where you can check his eligibility.

You received the full 2400? That's good for you. I saw a lot of people that filed taxes first week of March and received the stimulus based on 2018.

  Just to clarify - when you say checks, did you get a single check, separate checks or was it a direct deposit? I was under the impression that physical checks were not being issued until April 24th.
