How Much Will Your Stimulus Check Be? Find Out!
What you get for the Coronavirus Stimulus check depends on your tax returns for 2019. If you haven’t filed yet, then they’ll use 2018 taxes. So, how much can you expect? You can figure it out fast with this free calculator! The COVID-19 Pandemic has most people in quarantine, and many people have been furloughed or laid off. So, the United States government has voted to send checks to people who meet certain criteria.
More than 80% of taxpayers will receive a stimulus payment this year. See if you qualify for a 2020 stimulus check and how much you can expect. They also explain what’s needed to get your payment.
Who gets a Stimulus Check?
Tax filers with an adjusted gross income (AGI) up to $75,000 for individuals, $112,500 for heads of household and up to $150,000 for married couples filing joint returns will receive $1,200 per individual, plus $500 per qualifying child. For filers with income above those amounts, the payment amount is reduced by $5 for each $100 above the $75,000/$112,500/$150,000 thresholds. Single filers with income exceeding $99,000 and $198,000 for joint filers with no children are not eligible. You’ll need a Social Security number to receive a stimulus check. (Of course, nobody is going to ask you here for your social! This just means that you need to have one to get the check.) If you’ve been claimed as a dependent on someone else’s 2019 tax return, you aren’t eligible to receive a stimulus payment.
If that still confuses you, just use the easy calculator to find out what you’ll get!
