Does anyone know if we file a return that has the recovery rebate wrong will it get rejected when efiling? We just had a little old lady drop off her information. She is not required to file and she said she did not g
They're working on it.
"Rettig's comments come as the IRS prepares to start the tax filing season on Feb. 12, which is a later-than-usual start date. During the filing season, people who did not receive the full amount of the stimulus payments to which they are entitled can claim a 'recovery rebate' tax credit. The IRS is working to ensure that its systems can verify that the rebate credits it provides to taxpayers are accurate."
I can only tell you this: the IRS denied me my Rebate for the stimulus of 600 that I never received saying my $9000 2020 income was more then the $75000 allowed --- how the heck does that make sense? nine thousand not ninety thousand -- but nine thousand-- who the heck do the employee there ? They cant do math and work for the IRS? AND now I have to wait 2 weeks for a letter they will send to the wrong address from an old house i lived in and moved from because it was destroyed in 2020 by a tornado. All because IRS wont update my information -- and btw this is going to create issues with the 1400 stimulus -- this is a HUGE freaking mess.
Reasons I was given on the Wheres My Refund Page
1 my dependants did not match -- which by the way I do not have dependants and never said I did
2 My SSI number is wrong when it isnt
3 My income exceeded the Rebate limits -- now $9,000 if far less then the $75000 limits so how does that work ?
Exact same thing happened to me. Never got the 2nd stimulus check, I moved so both my address and banking information changed. So I filed early and claimed the Recovery Rebate Credit. They delayed my return beyond 21 days and subtracted $600 from my refund. Same reasons on the information tab, none of which could apply to my situation. They do say I will get a letter.
I signed up for an IRS profile to see the information on the stimulus payments and it clearly shows I never got the 2nd one. I do see that they tried to auto-deposit the 3rd stimulus to the wrong account again on the 17th(though I filed Feb 12 to prevent this). A few days after seeing that- they show they are mailing the payment-so the bank returned it. If they then mailed the 2nd one to the wrong address-who knows when they will get that back and be able to show for sure I did not get it.
