Some People May Have To Return Their $1400 Stimulus Check Many received their $1400 stimulus checks, but some may have to actually return them. One group that will have to return the checks are nonalien residents. Those are people who are is not a U.S. citizen, doesn’t have a green card, and is not physically present in the U.S. for the required amount of time. This also goes for anyone who died before January 1, 2021. The financial publication Kiplinger states, “The extra $1,400 per dependent is also not available for a parent who died before 2021 or, in the case of a joint return, if both parents died before then.” Have you received your third stimulus check yet? Do you think there will be a fourth?
