Note: VITA is the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, which will provide free tax preparation services to underserved communities, typically including those who make less than $54000 year, have a disability, are elderly, or have limited English speaking ability.
Also, EIP stands for Economic Impact Payment. This debit card system is a Treasury-sponsored Visa card that allows you to access your stimulus payments without going through a bank.

I’m so annoyed with the IRS. I never got my 600 dollars so I had to apply for a credit and get it now with filing my taxes. And now that I’ve filed my taxes about a week ago, I log in and it says payment status unavailable for the 1400. What do I do about that? I haven’t moved, my bank hasn’t changed or anything. How is it this difficult for them?? seriously, I’m so confused
Biden agrees to lowered eligibility for 3rd round of stimulus checks...
So not only has the next stimulus check been cut down to $1400 from $2000, but the income brackets have been been set even lower: $75,000 for individuals, $150,000 for couples.
My parents have four kids living at home (one in college, one college-aged but not enrolled, one in high school and college, and one that’s turning 17 this week) and will only get credit for the youngest. The other three are exempt from being counted under parents because they’re over 18 and all working but two of them won’t even get the stimulus because they don’t file taxes as students. My brother might get his first stimulus payment since he’ll be filing for taxes finally.
(YT suggested the vid because i search for info on this like once a week.)
