If you are Single - you do NOT qualify for the stimulus credit when your AGI - adjusted gross income is above $99,000

There is no fee - and you would not be eligible.

Let me know if you need help with verification.

I think I am being scammed
Expert:  Lev replied 22 days ago.

If you PAID - yes - most likely.

If you have not yet paid - do NOT pay for such false promise.

Hi! Different expert here. I am a CPA who has been practicing for over 35 years. I have read the CARE Act, and can answer your question.

Please give me a few minutes to type my response. Please ignore any requests for phone calls (unless you want one) as they are generated by the website, not by me.

The CARE Act, the law that provides the stimulus check, clearly states that the payments are to be made to single taxpayers whose adjusted gross income (AGI) is $75,000 or less. The stimulus check is reduced by 5% for each dollar over $75,000 the taxpayer's AGI is. The stimulus is reduced to zero at $99,000. So if your AGI is over $99,000, you will not receive ANY stimulus payment. There are no fees that are paid to get you a check if your AGI is over this amount. In fact, even if your AGI was lower than $75,000, there is no fee charged to get your stimulus payment. Anyone who is asking for a fee for this is scamming you. Do not pay any fees!

Now, if you have not filed a tax return in the past, and a tax preparer files a return for you so that you can get a stimulus payment, that is legal.

I hope that this answers your question, please feel free to ask and I will be happy to answer.

Thanks! Have a great week!
