Did you receive a stimulus check?
Economic Impact Payments (Payments) from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) and American Rescue Plan Act of 2021
There are reports that some individuals received a deposit or check from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in error. If you are a non-resident alien for tax purposes, you are not eligible to receive the stimulus check. It is recommended that you do not spend this money as you may be required to return the stimulus. You may have received this in error because you mis-filed your 2018 annual federal taxes. You can amend your past tax filing if you believe you made a mistake.
You can review more information on the Economic Impact Payment (stimulus check) on the IRS website.
