The stimulus check is not something that you need to pay back to the government like a loan, nor do you need to pay taxes on it come tax time in April. The stimulus check is considered free money for you to do with as you please. The main reason for it was that you would spend it in hopes of stimulating the economy, hence the name, stimulus check.
To repeat, you do not have to pay back the stimulus money that you received during the year.
For those who are employed and have been receiving the tax cut in the amount of $20/week or so, that is also free money that you don’t need to pay back to the IRS, that is why you got it in the first place. Otherwise you would get a large deduction on your taxes come April instead of the $20/week spread over the course of the year.
