Who can take your stimulus check from you?
Private banks and creditors may be able to seize a payment to cover an outstanding debt. Some states, such as California, have issued orders forbidding banks and creditors from garnishing your stimulus check.
Will I receive a stimulus check if I owe taxes?
If you owe federal taxes or have other federal debts, the IRS will not reduce your stimulus payment to cover those, with one exception we know of. If you weren’t required to file a tax return, you can still qualify for a stimulus check.
Why am I not getting a stimulus check?
Your income is too high. A big reason you won’t qualify for a stimulus payment (or economic-impact payment, as the IRS calls it) is that you make too much money. You won’t get a stimulus check if your adjusted gross income (AGI) is greater than: $99,000, if your filing status was single or married and filing separately.
How do I know if I qualify for a stimulus check?
To qualify for the full payment, you must make less than $75,000 per year ($150,000 for a married couple filing jointly) or less than $112,500 if you’re the head of household (typically single parents). Even if you have no income, you’re eligible to receive a stimulus check.
