What does “Your federal stimulus Return was accepted” mean? Does it mean that I will get the check ?

Yes, if you meet the requirements to receive the Stimulus Payment.

 

From the IRS web site

 

U.S. residents will receive the Economic Impact Payment of $1,200 for individual or head of household filers, and $2,400 for married filing jointly if they are not a dependent of another taxpayer and have a work eligible Social Security number with adjusted gross income up to:

  • $75,000 for individuals
  • $112,500 for head of household filers and
  • $150,000 for married couples filing joint returns

Taxpayers will receive a reduced payment if their AGI is between:

  • $75,000 and $99,000 if their filing status was single or married filing separately
  • 112,500 and $136,500 for head of household
  • $150,000 and $198,000 if their filing status was married filing jointly

The amount of the reduced payment will be based upon the taxpayers specific adjusted gross income.

Eligible retirees and recipients of Social Security, Railroad Retirement, disability or veterans' benefits as well as taxpayers who do not make enough money to normally have to file a tax return will receive a payment. This also includes those who have no income, as well as those whose income comes entirely from certain benefit programs, such as Supplemental Security Income benefits.

Retirees who receive either Social Security retirement or Railroad Retirement benefits will also receive payments automatically.

Do I qualify if I just turned 18 this year?? Because for the other requirements ( I am an eligible non-filers) it’s okay. But I just filed because of the economic impact payment.

Probably not.  Were you claimed as a dependent?

No. Well my parents are not taxpayers in the U.S so I don’t really know.
