There are only two requirements for anyone to receive the stimulus check: Filing an income tax return for 2018 or 2019 (2019 tax returns can be filed anytime, but--because of the pandemic--they are not due until August of September, 2020); and still be alive and breathing.
It was my last joint return after a divorce filed through a preparer in Indianapolis, IN. The preparer has claimed that for "privacy reasons" she can't give me a copy, though she did give my ex a copy. I did pay half the fees for the prep but paid them directly to my ex. This is... Read more »
If you filed a joint return with your ex husband you are entitled to a copy of the joint return. However, if you intend to give your copy to another tax preparer, then your ex husband will have to consent to the release of HIS confidential information.
He has refused to let me have any of the $750 rapid refund we were approved for. He then took every bit of the remaining funds off of the card. Due to his abusive alcoholism we are not staying together as of 2/13/20.
My husband was involved in a rear end collision that caused damage to his spine. He will soon lose his physically demanding job due to his injury. We need to withdraw from his 401k - would this situation exempt us from paying the 10% penalty for early withdrawal? Thank you!

But the more important question here is why you and your husband are contemplating the withdrawal. If your husband is represented by an attorney in this accident, it's possible that...Read more »
