Number Of New Stimulus Checks
If you haven’t filed a 2019 return, the IRS will rely on information from your 2018 return to determine your stimulus amount. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNN on March 26 that the White House is pushing to get stimulus payments issued by April 6.
To get a payment the first time around, you had to have a Social Security number. This time, a spouse with a Social Security number filing jointly could get a $600 payment even if the other spouse doesn’t have a Social Security number. The “Get My Payment” tool is now live on the IRS website, though it has encountered some glitches since its recent launch.
If you’ve already filed your tax return for 2019, the IRS will base your rebate amount on your AGI for 2019. If you didn’t provide your direct deposit information with your taxes but don’t want to wait several weeks or months for your stimulus payment, don’t panic.
A free online tool from the IRS called Get My Payment allows people to provide their direct deposit information so they don’t have to wait for their check to arrive in the mail. If you did not provide payment account information, a check will be mailed to you to the address you provided. As with the previous round of coronavirus stimulus checks under the CARES Act, you are likely to see the money quickly if the IRS has your direct deposit information on file.
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the White House signed into law a bill that includes the provision of stimulus payments for individual Americans. Their automatic payments should begin arriving the week of April 27, the IRS said on April 24. If you received a SSA-1099 form , the federal government will send the stimulus payout the same way as Social Security payments.
The IRS urges anyone with a tax filing obligation and who hasn’t yet filed a tax return for 2018 or 2019, to file as soon as they can to receive an Economic Impact Payment. If you received $1,200 last time, expect $600 this time.
Aside from the $600 stimulus checks, the stimulus bill also includes an extra $300 a week in unemployment aid. Some Americans are also ineligible for stimulus checks and may receive nothing.
If you haven’t yet filed a 2019 return, your AGI from your 2018 return will be the basis for calculating your rebate. When you file your taxes, include your direct deposit information on the return so that the IRS can send you your payment quickly. “People who need money now may have to wait months until they can file a tax return and get their refund, unless the tax prep companies are able to forward the funds.”
Just as with the first round of stimulus checks, there are income requirements. For additional income, the check starts to phase out, hitting zero at $87,000.
If you’ve still not received your payment from the first round of stimulus checks, you’ll be able to claim it as a tax credit in the 2020 tax season, so long as you were truly qualified to receive such a payment. That is half of what they received in the first round of stimulus checks. And now, President Trump has signed asecond $900 billion economic relief packageon December 27 that includes another stimulus check paying up to $600 per person.
