THE IRS may have overpaid you with stimulus check money – and you may be able to keep it.

If you earned less income in 2019 than you did in 2020 and the IRS calculated your check amount based on your 2019 tax data, CNET says you can keep that difference.

However, if you received money for someone who died or a dependent someone else claims for their taxes, you are expected to refund the additional amount, the point of sale reported.

The IRS will also recalculate “plus-up” adjustments and send them – the missing stimulus amounts from the previous two checks – as credit towards your taxes that year.

This means that you don’t have to wait until you file your tax return next year to claim the missing amounts.

Social Security Income (SSI) recipients should receive their third stimulus checks by Wednesday. Around four million checks with a total value of more than 10 billion are planned.

The checks are sent to around 30 million social security takers who do not have to file taxes.

The news of the payment date was first shared at a press conference last week by White House press secretary Jen Psaki.

“”[The IRS, working with the Social Security Administration, is] on track to send those payments out this weekend, ”said Psaki. “The majority of people should see them in their bank accounts on Wednesday April 7th, which is obviously a very positive step forward.”

People received their stimulus checks after President Joe Biden signed the Covid-19 bill on March 11.

Many people received their stimulus money as a direct deposit into their bank accounts.

However, if the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) doesn’t have your banking information, you can get the money as a check.

As with all US Treasury checks, you have exactly one year to cash the payment. Fortunately, if you miss this deadline, you can get a replacement for an expired check.

You can request payment tracking if you believe your Stimulus Check has been destroyed, lost, or stolen.

So far, around 130 million checks worth $ 1,400 and worth around $ 335 billion have been sent in the third round of economic activity, the IRS said on Thursday.
