The U.S. government passed a $2 trillion dollar stimulus plan on Friday, March 27, 2020. This article was last updated on Saturday, March 28, 2020 at 12 p.m. EST.
The U.S. government is about to send stimulus payments in the form of checks or direct deposit to many American taxpayers to help people financially survive the COVID-19 outbreak.
According to the bill, the amount you will receive from the COVID-19 stimulus package is determined by your AGI and your tax filing status. The government will look at your 2019 tax return (the one you filed this year) to get this information. If you haven’t prepared this year’s tax return yet, they will use your 2018 AGI and filing status.
Stimulus check amount
$75,000 or less
Married filing jointly
$150,000 or less
Head of Household
$112,500 or less
Dependents under 17*
*Each qualifying dependent under age 17 at the end of the tax year will be worth an additional $500. This amount will be added to the check of their legal guardian.
If your income exceeds the thresholds in the chart above, the amount will be reduced on a sliding scale and phase out at $99,000 for single filers, $198,000 for joint filers, and $136,500 for head of household filers.
