Hey guys,

 

So two months ago, I got my EAD with my SSN and filed our taxes jointly after. My husband already got his stimulus prior to filing his 2019 taxes and just today, he got another Stimulus deposited to his account. Is it because we filed together and it was a follow up stimulus for me? Anyone else have the same situation?

You can check on irs.gov with YOUR info to see what it says.

No idea why it came as 2 separate payments...that doesn't seem right.

But yes, if you filed jointly and both used an SSN, then you would qualify for the advance rebate at the amrrie (double the single) rate.

To file jointly, they would have had to been considered a US resident alien for tax purposes. This is permissible via - at least - the NRA spouse election (https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/nonresident-alien-spouse).

The stimulus was part of changes to tax law and is based on tax filings.

Is it because we filed together and it was a follow up stimulus for me? Anyone else have the same situation?

Regarding the stimulus: It wasn't necessary for the 2019 tax return to have been filed to receive the stimulus since they were also able to base it on the 2018 tax filing. So here goes.. all on assumption basis since you didn't mention any amounts:

 

Your husband probably received a $1,200 stimulus based on his 2018 tax filing (assuming he filed single with no child dependents). Then, you filed a joint 2019 tax return and listed the same bank account for dir dep. IRS processed the 2019 tax return and now you're in the system and you haven't received your stimulus yet so the issued it using the same bank account listed on the tax return - assuming another $1,200 stimulus payment was received.

 

It's $1,200 each on a joint tax return.

The same happened to us. Your explanation makes perfect sense. Thanks
