What about

  • You earn more than the allowed maximum BUT lost your job
    • Unfortunately, it goes off the most recent filed tax return 2018 or 2019 so if you lost your job the IRS still thinks you make too much
  • Parents with split custody
    • Based on most recent tax return 
      • If you rotate dependent claiming – the payment will go to whoever had the dependents on the last tax return 
  • Divorced
    • Filled last tax return joint 
      • Both payments will go to the last bank account on file
  • Owe child support
    • Payment may get garnished
