The IRS released almost 160 million relief checks to Americans by early June, two months after the onetime money installments were approved in the emergency CARES Act. People got up to $1,200 and joint filers got up to $3,400, in addition to an extra $500 for every dependent 16 or younger.
The bill additionally proposes a second $1,200 economic effect installment. The second round of checks will follow similar eligibility criteria as the first round, as indicated by a reminder from the Senate Finance Committee: Qualifying people winning a gross balanced salary up to $75,000 every year in 2019, and couples acquiring $150,000, will get the full $1,200 or $2,400, separately. From that point, the checks will be decreased by $5 for each $100 in salary, eliminating $99,000 and $198,000.
People who have no salary and those whose pay comes from projects, for example, SSI benefits are as yet qualified for the full rebate amount.
