Rebate Recovery

Paul-G-328

I have a client who lives with and is a dependent of her parents but she's filling for the first time with a 1099 for $24. Because she's filing for the first time it is showing that she should get $1,200 and $600 stimulus payments added to her return. Would this be correct or should I put in what her parents received FOR her in E1 and E2?

if she is a dependent of her parents, be sure you mark the boxes on the Fed Info worksheet that she is such...no recovery rebate should compute for her.  This is what it looks like in Professional, Basic should be similar

You "should" mark that she is being claimed as a dependent of someone else.

Why is she filing a tax return for $24 of income?

To get $ 1800 in "free" money?

1099-NEC with $24,400 in box #1 as a property mgr. She's single with a $12,400 standard deduction. I checked Other on the 1099-NEC so it went in as Ordinary Income but she still has to file. But even though I checked that she was claimed by her parents the Recovery Rebate form showed her with $1,200 for E1 and $600 for E2 and when I put zero for amount rec'd it shows she's qualified for $1,800 credit. My question was should I put in what her parents got for her  - $500?

No It asks what SHE received, she received 0. Doesnt matter what parents got.

"so she qualifies for the $1,800"

I think you need to work through the EIP #1 and EIP #2 qualification details, again.

If she qualifies in 2020, what was paid in Advance based on 2018 or 2019 (a projection) to someone else has no bearing on 2020. But it doesn't seem you have confirmed this person qualifies.

If shes a property manager, it should be self employment income (Sch C), not other ordinary income. 

And with 24K in income its doubtful she qualifies as a dependent.

But if she was claimed as a dependent on her parents 2020 return, it does matter.

And by the way, there is a little difference between a 1099 for $24 and $24,000 ---------------- $23,976 to be exact.

@Paul-G-328 Your OP said $24, not $24,400.

The original post was:

"I have a client who lives with and is a dependent of her parents but she's filling for the first time with a 1099 for $24.

Yeah, well.... the salary/signing bonus was just soo high I couldn't resist.  I do have to think about having enough for Juno to live on (in the style to which she is accustomed) if this tax season is the end of me.

Right now, just the ERC may do me in 🤣
