How Are Taxpayers That Dont Pay Taxes Receiving Refunds

I have a friend that told me she had filed her taxes already and was being refunded $4,100.00. She stated she filed Head of Household but had no dependents to claim and had earned no real Income. She said there was a program or grant or something but that's all she new. Is it the Stimulus Check, or The Recovery and Revitalization Grant or what?

Thank you for your question about how are taxpayers that dont pay taxes receiving refunds.

In order to file Head of Household you have to pass certain requirements, one of which is that you are able to claim a dependent exemption. Therefore, there isn't anything that I've heard of that would enable her to file as Head of Household without a dependent. If she did so, she will likely be audited or sent a correction letter and bill for reimbursement.
