It is not too late to receive your economic impact stimulus payment that is available to all Americans as part of The CARES Act. The Act was passed in March 2020 to provide economic assistance for Americans in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These payments started going out in April and aim to give immediate relief to families and individuals during this timeThose who rely on public assistance such as food, financial and medical support should make sure they receive the additional relief that is available to them.

You’re likely to be eligible for an economic impact payment if you:

How much money can I receive?

  • Single adults with an income of $75,000 or less will receive $1,200
  • Married couples (with no childrenthat earn less than $150,000 will receive $2,400
  • Parents will receive $500 for each qualifying child under the age of 17
  • Taxpayers filing as head of household will get $1,200 if they earned $112,500 or less

How will I receive my payment?

The payments are sent automatically to most taxpayers. For taxpayers who filed tax returns in 2018 and 2019, and for most seniors and retirees, no further action is neededThe IRS will transfer the money via direct deposit based on the bank information you provided on your 2019 or 2018 tax return.
