Where is my stimulus check??
I have had a lot of questions about the Economic Impact Payments, also known as the Stimulus Checks. Here is the information that I know:
* Income restrictions are $75000 for those filing single and $150000 for married filing jointly. Those making more than those amounts will receive a lesser amount up to $99,000 (single) and $198,000 (MFJ).
* Each person that files will receive $1200 and $500 for each child until the age of 17
* If you have filed your 2019 tax return and had a federal refund, they will put the money directly into your account they have on file. If you did not have a refund or received your refund by check, you will need to provide your direct deposit information (details in this blog post) or they will send you a check in May or June.
* If you have not filed your 2019 taxes yet, but had a refund that was direct deposited into your account from your 2018 taxes, they will put the money directly into your account. If you did not have a refund or received your refund by check, you will need to provide your direct deposit information (details below) or they will send you a check in May or June.
* If you collect Social Security and have that money deposited into your checking account, the IRS will automatically deposit your stimulus check into the same account.
* If you were claimed as a dependent on someone else's return, you are not eligible for the stimulus check.
If you want to add your direct deposit information or just want to check on the status of your stimulus check, the IRS has created a website at https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments . You will need your social security number, adjusted gross income from your tax return, amount of refund or payment, and your birth date.
