  • No Tax Stimulus for Married filing jointly with ITN

    Looks like 7.3 Million Mixed Status Families who
    are legitimately paying taxes get a big poke in the eye by Uncle Sam for "playing by the rule of law".

    If you a LPR waiting on a spouse overseas, or a US Citizen married to a person with a ITN paying taxes NO MARRIED FILING JOINTLY this year or NO CHECK from Uncle Sam.

    American Families United is trying to organize a conference call with a Tax person and an Immigration attorney to determine if 'married filing separately" can get mixed status families a stimulus check without jeapordizing the appearance of thier 'legitimate marriage" for immigration officials.

    Are you eligible? The vast majority of people who file a 2007 income tax return qualify, and many who don't regularly file a tax return may qualify as well. You're eligible if you have a valid Social Security Number (SSN), can't be claimed as a dependent on a tax return and have either an income tax liability or "qualifying income" of at least $3,000. Qualifying income includes any combination of earned income and certain benefits from Social Security, Veterans Affairs or Railroad Retirement. Additional information is below, and a full legal description is available in Revenue Procedure 2008-21.

    Both people listed on a "married filing jointly" return must have valid SSNs to qualify for the payment "” if only one has a valid SSN, neither can receive the payment.

    Can you use an ITIN instead of an SSN? Taxpayers with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) instead of an SSN are not eligible to receive a stimulus payment. Both people listed on a "married filing jointly" return must have valid SSNs to qualify for the payment "” if only one has a valid SSN, neither can receive the payment

      No one with a normal job is eligible. If you make more than $75,000 you get nothing and some low life s-um bag gets a reward for being lazy and/or stupid; what a joke. I don't know anyone making less than that - including illegal aliens. So who is getting this money that I am paying??? How is this a stimulus ? They are just going to waste it on beer and cigarrettes.
      These people stop at Nothing !

      Death to IMBRA AND VAWA !

      God Bless America and no one else !!!
