Reasons Your Rebate Check is Less Than You Expected

Rebate Check Less Than You Expected? Here's Why

The IRS continues to update their FAQs about the stimulus checks and has now stated that If you owe federal taxes from previous tax years or have other debts you owe such as a student loan or child support, those uncollected amounts can be taken from your rebate check.

According to the IRS, everyone eligible for a check will receive a notice shortly after your payment has been issued that explains how your payment was calculated. If you're someone whose payment was reduced to offset back taxes or other debts, you'll receive a separate notice from the IRS a couple of weeks after you've gotten your rebate check and first notice. Make sure you hold on to any notice you receive for your records.
