More than 159 million people in the United States have received economic impact checks totaling 267 billion dollars. Although there are still people who don’t even know they qualify for payment.
People who qualify for the economic stimulus check
People who, for example, have no requirement to file a tax return because they earn very little money, those who live on the street also qualify.
People Elegible to the Economic Stimulus
- Those who earn less than $12,200 a year.
- Couples who earn less than $24,400 and do not file a tax return
People who have not earned a penny, who do not work and do not have a home, also get the economic stimulus check.
Who Does Not Qualify For This Payment?
People who do not qualify for this payment are those who do not have a valid social security number and are not U.S. residents.
What is the benefit?
This payment consists of a check for $1200 per person and another $500 for each child (if your child is 16 or younger).
A low-income family of 5 receives $2400 for the parents and $500 for each child, for a total of $3900.
Be sure that no one has claimed your children as dependents. Sometimes parents claim their children even though they file tax returns on their own. That confusion extends to older people who complain that they didn’t get their check. Many times children put their parents as dependents on the tax return.
