America's media has finally tumbled to the fact that the IRS is sending those $1,200 stimulus checks to aliens who are not qualified to receive them, a prospect we raised weeks ago.

The unwitting recipients of the checks are students who are legally in the country, are using Social Security numbers legitimately issued to them, and, like the rest of us, did not file for the payments, so this is a color-it-grey, not a purely black, problem.

Some area residents still haven't gotten their pandemic stimulus checks from Uncle Sam.

The Treasury Department and IRS reported on Wednesday that 130 million individuals had received payments totaling more than $207 billion in less than 30 days. Otherwise, their payment at this time will be $1,200 and, by law, the additional $500 per eligible child amount will be paid in association with a return filing for tax year 2020.

"Everyone ought to share this information broadly and assist others with the plus $500 Push, ' to ensure that more Americans get more money as quickly as possible."This goes for SSI as well as VA recipients who have children and who weren't required to file a tax return for a previous couple of years". This group will generally receive their Economic Impact Payments by direct deposit, Direct Express debit card or by paper check, just as they would normally receive their benefits. The way to let the IRS know whether you have dependent children and also to make the most of that extra $500 benefit would be to visit the IRS' Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here net tool.

FOX Business' Charlie Gasparino says Congress and the White House are thinking about a new stimulus package that could exceed $1 trillion. That includes individuals who don't usually file a tax return.

"If you did not receive the full amount to which you believe you are entitled, you will be able to claim the additional amount when you file your 2020 tax return", the IRS said in updated guidance. When he's not writing about technology, he can be found hunched protectively over his burgeoning collection of vinyl, as well as nursing his Whovianism and bingeing on a variety of TV shows you probably don't like.
