    Default Why is Stimulus Check Cut for Child Based on the Filing Status?

    Filed: Married filing jointly.

    Spouse had no income, one income family. Supposed to get $600 + $600 (+ $300 for the kid) = $1500 but only got $750 due to spouse's student loans.


    IRS said:

    Married filing Jointly: $600 + $600 + $300 for child = $1500 / 2 for injured spouse = $750

    Married filing Separately would have been: $600 + $300 for child = $900


    Shouldn't the child portion of the stimulus be protected, regardless of filing status if the only income was made by the injured spouse?

    You already got your answer, ad nauseum, on the other site you posted this question on.

    Its not going to change here.
