Kiddie Tax on Unemployment. "Stimulus" for Overseas Residents

BobKamman
Level 13

Should college kids have to pay higher tax rates on their unemployment, than if they had earned the same amount at the job they lost because of the pandemic?

Should citizens and green-card holders, earning $180,000 a year and living overseas without spending a day in the United States last year, collect another $1,400 from the Treasury?

I am not much for writing Congress – I don’t have the money to send along with it – but this is a key week when if someone can convince just one of 50 Senators that the pending legislation can be improved, the amendment process is still available.

It’s easy to do it by email. If you have ten minutes to explain the problem and express your opinion, here is where to start.
