Coronavirus Stimulus Checks

If you’ve filed your 2018 or 2019 taxes using direct deposit, you could get your direct payment as early as Monday, April 13 – and most people don’t need to do anything to get it.

 

You do not have to pay it back and it is not considered taxable income.

 

For support from the IRS you can call their Stimulus Check Hotline: 800-919-9835

 

HOW MUCH MONEY WILL I GET?

Individuals making up to $75,000 ($150,000 for married workers) will receive payments of $1,200 with an additional $500 payment per minor child. The payments decrease on a sliding scale and stop altogether for single workers making more than $99,000 ($198,000 for married workers and $218,000 for a family of four.) You can calculate your payment HERE

 

IF YOU HAVEN'T RECEIVED YOUR CHECK AND WOULD LIKE TO CHECK IT'S STATUS, you can do so on the IRS website HERE

 

IF YOU RECEIVE SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS and the Social Security Administration provides regular direct deposit payments, you don’t need to take any further action to get your stimulus payment.

 

IF YOU DON'T NORMALLY FILE TAXES, you should fill out the form HERE to receive your payment. This includes people who don’t meet the income threshold necessary to file taxes, as well as those who benefit from Supplemental Security Income (SSI), veterans disability compensation, a pension, or survivor benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
