If I claim a elderly dependent on my 2019 return will I receive their covid -19 relief money? Or will they need to file alternative paperwork ?

You will not receive any amount for a dependent over 16. If you claim them, they will get nothing.

 

You will get a check if you:

  • Have a Social Security number.
  • Have filed taxes in 2018 or 2019, or don't earn enough to file but receive Social Security payments.
  • Earned less than $99,000 for single filers, $136,500 for heads of household, or $198,000 for married filers according to the most recent tax return filed.
  • Are not claimed by someone else as a dependent.

My elderly parents were my dependents for 2019, but no longer are and will not be my dependents for 2020. 

As they do not file taxes since they only receive Social Security benefits, will they receive the stimulus next year since the stimulus is ultimately based off of 2020?
