We don't know the details. It is continuously evolving.

 

5. Owing the IRS money won’t affect your stimulus check

Owing the government money is never fun. Usually, the government will come after your tax refund to offset money you owe. That might have you thinking your stimulus check might be up for grabs as well if you’ve got a tax debt to Uncle Sam. 

The good news is, stimulus checks likely won’t be seized to pay a tax debt. The only time they will be withheld is when an individual owes child support money.

Yes, if you are behind on child support the stimulus is going to catch it up for you. That’s a good thing.... for you and lil Johnny.  If you owe Uncle Sam back taxes that will not affect covid 19 money.

I have a similar situation. I owe around as much, but my income tax is paying most of it off. I'm wondering the same thing, but can't find where I can add a question.
