Will I get money from the Coronavirus Bail-Out/Stimulus Bill? Right now, Democrats and Republicans are battling over the specific provisions of the Coronavirus Stimulus Plan. President Trump proposed a plan that would provide $250 Billion in Direct Payments to Americans. The debate centers on the timing of payments and whether the payments should be a set amount or be flexible based on circumstances.
Government Stimulus Check Requirements
To complicate things further Sen. Bernie Sanders is pushing for modifications that would provide for payments of $2,000 per month to every American over 18. While it is doubtful that Sanders’ proposed changes will be adopted, as the Bill stands right now, you would receive:
- $1,200 if you are single and made no more than $75,000 as shown on your 2018 Federal Tax Return;
- $2,400 per couple if you and your spouse filed as “Married Filing Jointly” and your combined income as shown on your 2018 Tax Return was no more than $150,000.
These payments reduce to zero as your reported income goes to $99,000 individually or $198,000 per couple. Additionally, eligible families with children will receive $500 per child. These payments are part of a bailout that also includes:
- $50 Billion to Bail-Out the Airline Industry;
- $150 Billion for other affected industries; and
- Provisions for payments to Small Businesses.
