Will people who have died since the first stimulus payment was issued receive this second payment?
Those who died before Jan. 1, 2020, are not eligible for the stimulus payment.
Will people who do not have a Social Security number but instead have an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) instead receive a stimulus payment?
As was the case under the first round of stimulus payments, taxpayers without an SSN are not eligible for the stimulus payment.
Individuals with an ITIN do not qualify for the stimulus payment. However, if the individual is married to a taxpayer with an SSN, the spouse - and any qualifying children with an SSN - are eligible for the stimulus payment.
When will the government start issuing stimulus payments?
The IRS began sending out stimulus payments in the last week of December, 2020.
Where will my 2nd stimulus check be sent?
Jackson Hewitt always fights for its clients and the situation of millions of taxpayers not having their second stimulus payment due to an IRS error was no exception. We considered this chain of events absolutely unacceptable and worked tirelessly with the highest levels of the U.S. Treasury Department, the IRS (including the IRS Commissioner), and other parts of the federal government to find a solution that ensured our customers would get what they were owed as quickly as possible.
We’re happy to confirm that the IRS will start processing stimulus payments when their systems come back online and impacted Jackson Hewitt taxpayers will have payments processed by February 1. This means they will receive their funds weeks earlier than if they needed to wait for their tax refund.
We are extremely disappointed that the IRS did not agree to solutions we recommended that could have rectified their error much sooner, but we are pleased that the hundreds of thousands of hardworking Americans impacted by this mistake will finally receive the relief they deserve. On their behalf, we will never tolerate anything less.
