Rooms rooms, after waiting for our stimulus checks for what seemed like forever, sir Joe Biden It finally came in the bag last month announcing that it would issue another round of checks after the delay. The stimulus package of $ 1.9 trillion was signed into law as one of the largest stimulus packages in US history. Innanet was so happy, people started to plunge into excitement so much that “Moneybagg Joe” started trending on Twitter! However, it appears that some eligible individuals who were expecting $ 1,400 will not receive it anymore due to their criminal past.
According to reports from The hill, Some countries can extract the third batch of stimulus checks from individuals who have been convicted of crimes. This is to compensate the victims and their families, according to the Treasury. A statement from officials written to Senator Maggie Hassan and Joe Mansheen which was provided today outlines what the money could go to, in addition to compensation. “To the extent permitted by state and applicable local law, the sums paid in the third round of.” [economic impact payments] It may be subject to withholding by state, local, or private creditors, as well as according to a court order (which may include crime-related fines, administrative court fees, compensation, and other court-ordered debts), “the statement said.
With the new updates, this will not affect anyone who is currently in different organizations. Senator Hassan and Mansheen have urged the Treasury since last month to clarify conditions regarding guidance regarding states’ ability to forfeit payments for the purpose of providing criminal compensation. They also responded to the Treasury Department in a recently written letter, “We strongly support state efforts to seize economic impact payments from criminals and to ensure that these payments benefit the families of crime victims rather than imprisoned criminals.”
To be clear, the Treasury Department responded to Senators and advised that federal law does not prohibit stimulus payments by any states or creditors. They also advise that this new connection will be on the IRS website at the bottom of the Frequently Asked Questions page but has not yet been updated.
Rooms, how do you feel about this?
