Rejection and refusal

I filed for a stimulus check this year, though I never did taxes before.. but my application was rejected. The thing is: my siblings are all in a similar situation, but received theirs immediately. I try to get back in touch to see if I messed up anywhere, but Turbo tax wouldn't let me back in my account for 2 days. What happened? Why was I kicked out? Is it still possible to receive anything?

If your return was rejected, you should receive an email with the reason and how to correct.  I do not know why you are locked out of your account,.

@legendarii We cannot see any of your information, nor did you share anything except that your siblings got stimulus checks and you did not.   We do not know how old you are or whether you can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's tax return.   You say you have never filed a tax return before, so it makes me wonder if you are a student or young enough/low income enough to be claimed as a dependent on someone else's return.  If you can be claimed as a dependent, you are not eligible to receive a stimulus check.

As for why your return was rejected---what was the rejection message/code in the email that said your return was rejected?

I'm the oldest of my siblings, but we all have had enough misfortune (and made enough mistakes) to recieive horribly low income. Nobody here can be claimed as a dependent, and there was no reasonable explanation for my rejection. 

 

I will tell the truth; I finally did get approved, but it came as a surprise. I honestly don't remember what changed. Though,  I hope this doesn't happen again; I'd like to know why/how I'm eligible but rejected, IF I'm turned away from anything again. (I'd understand if I couldn't get it at all, but every other site said I qualified, until I applied)

@legendarii Rejections for e-files come from the IRS.   Unless we know exactly what the rejection code or rejection message you received said, we do not know why your e-file was rejected.   But you say that it was now accepted?   Good news---so wait for the IRS to process it.
