Most of the rules remain the same with the second stimulus check, but some people won’t qualify. Here’s what’s going on now.
The $600-per-person total of the second stimulus check could work against you.
The result of some decently complex stimulus-check math is that more people will phase out of qualifying for a stimulus check payment, especially if they don’t have children 16 and under, the designated age for a qualified dependent.
Dependents between the ages of 17 and 24 are left out once again
Non Resident Alien Clause
If you’re a “nonresident alien,” you would not be eligible for a second stimulus check. The government defines a nonresident alien as someone who “has not passed the green card test or the substantial presence test.”
‘Nonresident aliens’ with a spouse who’s a US citizen could now qualify for a second check
People with overdue child support won’t be automatically disqualified this time
The current law wouldn’t prohibit people in jail or prison from getting the second stimulus payment
