I had a horrible thought! The stimulus checks are based upon your adjusted gross income. I completely forgot that Jerry Lee gets to deduct all of his spousal support paid to me. If he hasn’t filed his 2019 tax refund it’s possible his income would be under the $75,000 threshold. Fuck! Fuck me, fuck me, fuck me!
In 2018 he worked the entire year at his $100,000 a year job. Not only did he pay full spousal support all year (hooray him!) he also paid me another $16,000 in back support, which is why I got totally screwed taxes last year. Even if his income was a little above the $100,000 mark he would definitely be below the $75,000 threshold. Harley might be a little bit above it, but between the two of them I think they would be under the $150,000 threshold to get the full amount, and they will definitely be under the $198,000. Plus, she will get credit for at least one kid.
So that sucks. Despite the county enforcement agency having my case for over a year I don’t think there’s anything official on the books. Which means no stimulus check is going to be diverted to my bank account. I also know that Jerry Lee is too fucking stupid to put any of it aside for when court plays out. And, he’s not going to try to catch up on anything either. So looks like those two jackasses will get to play with approximately $2900 while I continue to wait for my day in court.
I’ll keep my fingers crossed that their 2019 taxes were already filed so everything was based off of that! He might still get some but it won’t be the full amount. I don’t know why but that makes me feel better.
