When John Vogt, Jr. wondered where his stimulus check was, he was shocked to find out that he was not eligible for one.

Vogt, 49, of Bronx, N.Y., is a fourth-generation American. In July, he married to a woman who is a Brazilian citizen. This year, they filed a joint tax return as a married couple.

Further, if you get a stimulus check , your check may be less than ,200. How is this possible? The good news is that there is no minimum adjusted gross income threshold. However, there is a maximum income threshold, and your stimulus check amount phases out ( gets reduced) by for

Millions of Americans are getting stimulus checks — but there are exceptions. He ' s a fourth - generation American but his wife is not . He ' s not getting a stimulus check .

Consequently, he is disqualified from receiving his $1,200 stimulus check.

The government is in the process of sending out millions of stimulus checks after Congress passed the $2 trillion Cares Act. Those checks amount to up to $1,200, or $2,400 per married couple, plus $500 for children under 17.

However, read the fine print and you find that the rules require individuals to have Social Security numbers in order to get the money. American citizens who filed jointly with someone in that category are also disqualified.

That has prompted disbelief from people like Vogt, a truck driver who was counting on the money to help start building an emergency cushion in the bank.

"How much more American do I have to be?" Vogt said. "That really offended me."

He added that a web portal would be established for people to supply their details and that checks would be sent to anyone else, but did not specify a timeline. Will others get checks in the mail? How things will work gets a little cloudy for those who have not authorized a direct deposit from the IRS

Stimulus checks are coming to offer relief to Americans during the COVID-19 crisis. If you didn't get one, here' s why. Here are five reason why you might not get a stimulus payment: 1. Your adjusted gross income is too high. There are three dollar figures to be aware of in terms of the stimulus

Vogt is not alone. The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund recently filed a lawsuit against the federal government on behalf of six citizens who were deemed ineligible for stimulus checks because their spouses use Individual Tax Identification Numbers (ITINs) when filing their tax returns.

ITINs are generally issued to non-American citizens for tax filing purposes.

A separate lawsuit was filed this week on behalf of American children who are being excluded from the payments because both of their parents are not citizens.

Meanwhile, Americans who find themselves excluded from receiving checks still have questions.

Guidance from the IRS does address the situation, though the information is limited.

Someone who is a non-resident alien as of 2020 does not qualify for a check, the agency says in its Q&A on the economic impact payments.

  With COVID-19 forcing DMV closures, car owners face delays for vehicle titles, registration in some states Some Americans will face delays in obtaining titles and registration for new vehicles due to DMV closures because of the coronavirus pandemic.The reason: The pandemic has forced Departments of Motor Vehicles and similar offices to close or reduce their capacity in many states, making registering and signing a vehicle title more difficult.

Found out he gave his stimulus check away to some friends going through tough times. Blew me away with that as he ’ s right. Thought I would share and maybe others out there will be inspired by bro dad! “So many of us are getting checks who don’t need them when other people are suffering.

Should I give him the money or return it to the IRS? Because your decision to withhold her stimulus check says more about you than it does about her. ‘I owe child support from my first marriage and did not receive a stimulus check . Does Trump not realize I have another family to take care of?’

How lawmakers could get more stimulus money into people's hands

If individuals are not qualifying residents and receive a payment, they should return it, according to the IRS.

Accountants who work with married couples where one individual files with an ITIN are left to try to untangle the riddle for their clients.

"This stimulus stuff is a nightmare!" one accountant at Greenback Expat Tax Services said in a memo to clients.

David McKeegan, who founded Greenback, said that many couples are high net worth, and therefore are not eligible for stimulus checks to begin with. (The payments phase out completely for couples with over $198,000 in income.)

Couples below that threshold have had mixed results.

"In some cases, we have seen people filing with a [non-resident alien] who happens to have a [Social Security number] and thus receive the stimulus payment for both folks," McKeegan said.

"But more often than not, we are receiving frustrated emails from clients asking why they have not received the payment yet," he said.

McKeegan said he hopes there will be a "true-up on the 2020 return to make the playing field a bit more level for everyone."

"We need to see how the final IRS interpretation goes on the 2020 return," McKeegan said.

For families who need the money now, that is little consolation.

Tiffany, 34, an American citizen who lives in Oregon and asked that her last name not be used, said her family was counting on the money for weeks before finding out they were disqualified.

Her husband, 45, is from Mexico. The couple has children ages 9 and 4, as well as a newborn baby. Tiffany said she understands that her husband isn't counted, but expected to at least receive $2,700 for her and her children.

That money would have helped tide the family over, Tiffany said, now that her husband has run out of work as a house painter. Fortunately, she is still employed as an administrative supervisor.

Meanwhile, her husband pays taxes to the U.S. government every year, she said.

"We're trying to do the best we can with what we have right now and are being penalized," she said.
