Important FAQ's

Below are important FAQ's that will be useful regarding the government stimulus payment. For more info please visit IRS.gov.

Who is eligible?
Those who filed taxes in 2019 or 2018 with an AGI of up to $75,000 for individuals and up to $150,000 for married couples filing joint returns will be eligible to receive the full payment. Eligible taxpayers who filed tax returns for either 2019 or 2018 will automatically receive an economic impact payment of up to $1,200 for individuals or $2,400 for married couples and up to $500 for each qualifying child.

How do I find my AGI?
Your AGI (Adjusted Gross Income) can be found for 2019 on:
-Line 8b of Form 1040
-Line 8b of From 1040-SR
Or if you have not filed 2019 taxes yet, your 2018 AGI can be found on:
-Line 7 of Form 1040
-Line 35 of Form 1040NR

If I am not required to file a tax return, am I eligible for a stimulus payment?
Yes! The IRS would use your Form SSA-1099 or Form RRB-1099 to determine whether or not you are eligible for a stimulus check. This pertains to senior citizens, Social Security recipients and railroad retirees. If you fall into one of these categories, you will be getting a $1,200 per person. Since the IRS doesn’t have information regarding dependents, no additional funds would be allocated.

I am currently a College student, am I eligible for a stimulus payment?
This depends. If you are an independent on your most recently filed tax returns, you would be eligible for a stimulus check. If someone claimed you as a dependent on their tax returns, you would not be eligible.

Will my stimulus payment be considered taxable income?
No. The stimulus checks will not be taxable income.

Where is my stimulus check? Please visit 
https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments to find out the status of your stimulus check.

Will my stimulus payment arrive earlier than the scheduled delivery date?
 GoBank will make your deposit available as soon as possible. Stimulus payments are not eligible for early direct deposit. Please visit 
irs.gov/coronavirus for more information. For security reasons, the IRS plans to mail a letter about the economic impact payment to the taxpayer's last known address within 15 days after the payment is paid. The letter will provide information on how the payment was made and how to report any failure to receive the payment. If a taxpayer is unsure they’re receiving a legitimate letter, the IRS urges taxpayers to visit IRS.gov first to protect against scam artists.

Misplaced your card or need to order a new one?
 You can order a new card by logging into your 
account.



How much money am I going to get from the government stimulus?
 Please visit 
here for details. AchieveCard has no information regarding the amount of your payment.

Will my deposit get rejected since I closed my card/account?
 If the IRS attempts to deposit a check to a closed account, the deposit will be rejected and returned to the IRS. The IRS will then attempt to send a check by mail. The IRS has set up the 
Get My Payment portal which will allow you to update your bank account information if the IRS doesn't have your direct deposit information on file and a check has not been issued yet.
