  1. Sorry RickS, didn't mean to puzzle or confuse anyone, just didn't know exactly what to call it.  We did not file taxes in 2018 or 2019.  We receive Social Security only and have direct deposit to US bank accounts.  Today was the first time the IRS page gave us anything other than the can't process information message.

    No, I am a U.S. citizen. I do not have to reside in the U.S. to get the $1,200.00, but my issue was that my spouse had a TIN number because she has a savings account in the U.S. and needed to have a TIN to open the account.

    My spouse has a 10-year U.S. Visa and her daughter is a naturalized citizen of the U.S.

    Either day, I am disqualified as per the info I received the IRS.

    Since my spouse got a very small 1099-INT for the savings account, I filed jointly w/her.



    Yeah it sucks.  Hopefully if there is another stimulus package they will correct this terrible clause.

    Yes they will receive the stimulus money. 

    If the couple files a joint tax return, one with a SSN and one with a TIN/ITIN, no one on that tax filing will receive the stimulus.  The only exception to this is if one of the people (generally the head of the household) filing that joint tax form was active duty military.  It is very easy to research this, simply google "mixed family status stimulus".  It does not matter if you are a US citizen, live abroad or not, if anyone filing taxes on a single form does not have a SSN, the entire family on that form is ineligible.   

  4. Unfortunately it is true.  "Mixed Status" families are being excluded in this stimulus go around.  If you and your spouse filed a joint tax return, you with a SSN and her with a TIN, the entire family is ineligible for the payment.  If you haven't filed yet, only file for yourself and the kids (if they have SSN's).  Hopefully they will correct this if there should be another stimulus package.

    On the IRS web page under who is eligible, the first line states US residents.   I read it all and it did not mention any exceptions. I am a non resident. I pay tax. I get SS. I am not expecting a deposit. I am going to try to paste the link but if it's not here, google IRS stimulus and go to the government website.


    But then there is this...  


  6. So my gas guy just stopped by to let me know that come tomorrow, they will not be allowed to deliver.  Based on everything I have read, propane gas for the house would fall under the essential category?  Is this possible, or was he just trying to get me to top off?

  7. The last one we did was done at the street door and we did not let them onto the property or into the house, they were fine with it and we had no issues.  Don't let them put the sticker on your door, that sticker/adhesive is the devil to get off!  The census takers asked me to get a piece of saran wrap and they stuck the sticker to that and then used every day cellophane tape to stick it up and told me that I could remove it after 2 weeks.  The sticker is just so they know that the house has already been counted.

    In Mazatlan they would confiscate your rear plate if you had a parking infraction..not sure about Jalisco.

    They don't generally take plates in Jalisco for infractions, but if you are involved in an accident or fender bender and don't stop, the victims, if they see you doing it, may follow you and take the plate.
