EIP

Tiger5
Level 4

I have a couple clients that have a ITIN. They are not residence, they just have the ITIN. Do they qualify for the EIP? One customer has a Father that is elderly and a Resident, can he apply for the EIP?

No, people with ITINs do not qualify for the EIP or the Recovery Rebate on the tax return.

You asked two different questions: "Do they qualify for the EIP? One customer has a Father that is elderly and a Resident, can he apply for the EIP?"

Perhaps it would help to review what is really happening:

The funds were paid out as Advanced payment against a projection. The projection used 2018 or 2019 tax returns. But 2020 is the Actuals. You use the 2020 return to reconcile what a person is entitled to, against what they got.

If the person is not a dependent in 2020, then they would be entitled to the payment/credit as individual filers. That doesn't mean "not being claimed." It means "no longer qualifies as a dependent."

You might want to bookmark these links and read the IRS guidance.

One for each EIP.

@Tiger5 

You already asked this type of topic. Are you not reading the links for resources given to you to learn from?

Here: https://proconnect.intuit.com/community/practice-advice/discussion/econimic-stimulas/00/125423

It's the same thing. You need to learn the eligibility per those IRS links.

Yes i did read these links, but just saw on the news that the individuals that have a ITIN number could possibly qualify if they pay there taxes. but i have found that it is not that case and they do not qualify but the individuals that have a combination (which not sure what is meant by this)? if its a combination of being married to a US citizen on a Tax return? I just wanted to clarify.

"I just wanted to clarify."

Go to the IRS to read who is eligible. Each topic is a different EIP, so read all the parts for who is eligible.

And I image in the news is covering the next payment that isn't yet signed into law. Not the first or the second. The qualifications are not always the same.
