8. That's not what it says. You will get the check but have to file a 2020 return next year.

You will still probably NOT have enough income to have to pay taxes on the payment.

2. You will get the $1200. There's been a lot of confusion and misinformation.

Assuming trumpís admin donít screw it up, youíll get you Stimulus payment the same way as your monthly payments.

33. What if someone doesn't get SS or SSI, only gets VA pension?

Do you have any info on this? I'm trying to muddle through the bill's language, but it's dense (as am I sometimes). Plus, it still may get amended in the House.

How dare they do this!

Nothing like yet another corporate gift fund at our expense!

I would also like to have seen the Defense Production Act initiated AND funded before any corporate gift handouts.

31. But...

I'd read here yesterday that the $1,200 for those on SSI/SSDI is only going to those who have enough additiinal income to have to pay taxes.

32. I heard that but I also heard if you get a 1099 then you get it anyway

I think the government sends out a tax form every year to people on social security (all forms). Do you know if you got anything from the social security department with an overview of what you earned in 2019?

37. TY!

Hi again, Jim.

I normally do receive a 1099, but my mail goes to a PO Box & I haven't gone near that place for fear of infection. I will get #s from online accounts & do taxes though.

We have a friend who is legally blind on SSDI, living on approx. $600/ month. The thought of her & others in like situations being passed over because they don't make enough to pay taxes infuriates me beyond words!

TY again!

34. That's not true,

everyone on SSI who received a 1099 form will receive a $1200.00 check deposited electronically if you already have direct deposit, a paper check if not.

5. Why should the handout apply to everyone?

 

The thing I don't understand is why are those that are employed or are already receiving government assistance getting more government assistance. My thoughts are the handout should only be for those affected, e.g. laid off or fired or have a loss of income directly related to the pandemic.

Try deciding whether you want your electricity shut off (this keep the O2 generator you need running) or eating for the last week of the month!

As a elderly/ disabled that gets 100.00 SNAP for the whole month.
Even 10.00 can buy bread or eggs.
I put every penny right back into this economy.

25. I don't think your understanding of the purpose of these checks is clear.

These are stimulus checks. They are being given to people in the hopes that they will spend the money and boost the economy. They are being given to the people that are most likely to do exactly that.

These aren't checks being given to help only people that have been laid off or fired. The increased unemployment amount is for that.

36. "Handout?"

Whatever. As I've said before, this is the confusion that results from Congress passing a "hybrid" bill -- part assistance, part stimulus.

But if it makes anyone feel better, I'm not getting one cent in "assistance" -- but I'll be getting the same $1200 most everyone else will be getting in "stimulus."

Either way, we'll be finding out for sure in the next few hours when it's passed by the House.

16. This would be my suggestion Borrow someones 2018 or newer turbo tax and file 2018 taxes

Do it electronically.
You would still owe no tax, only the filing fee.

Since the IRS does not know who you are, or where to deposit the check, and they are using 2018 data.
this should fix that

receiving SSDI benefits without having to file a return.

But they should contact SSA quickly if they've moved recently and haven't had their info updated.

26. My understanding is

that if you receive social security and don't receive enough to have to file taxes, the government will use the most recent 1099 you received, for 2019, to determine your eligibility to receive this new additional payment. Meaning you don't need to do anything extra.
