COVID-19 State Tax Relief for Illinois: Quarterly Payments Due

COVID-19 State Tax Relief for Illinois: Quarterly Payments Due

Under the plan, single people earning incomes below $75,000 will receive as much as $1,200 as "direct payments into most people's deposit accounts", Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said at a news briefing on Wednesday.

For those making less than $75,000, expect to receive a check of $1,200 per adult and $500 per child under the age of 17.

Economists say direct payments are one of the most effective ways to generate economic activity because people who get the money tend to spend it quickly.

It requires check receivers to have filed their 2018 or 2019 taxes with a "valid identification number", which the bill specifically defines as a Social Security number, although other taxpayer identification numbers exist. Last tax season close to three out of four tax filers received a tax refund, and the average direct deposit tax refund was close to $3,000! If not, the IRS would send out checks in the mail.

How much money will you get in a stimulus check?

"The government still needs to set up these programs, and we don't know who exactly will qualify for loans and grants or how to apply", OOIDA wrote. If their income past year was in the phase-out range, they would still receive a partial rebate based on their 2019 tax return.

The agency said last week that it is closing its 300-plus in-person assistance centers but would continue to process tax returns and help taxpayers "to the greatest extent possible".

To underscore the widespread impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the country, several senators were not present for the vote because they were self-quarantining because of the virus. Individuals who earned more than $99,000 will not receive a check.

Kiplinger also reports you won't lose out on money if you don't receive a check now - however, you'll have to wait until next year to get a check.

"With this aid, movie theaters can get through this crisis confident in being able to re-open, knowing their vital, trained workforce is able to weather this pandemic and have jobs waiting for them when it is safe to reopen", the association said in a statement. Of course, if you don't have any payments you have to make, you have the right to save that money, too. They must meet the same income requirements as everyone else. Teresa Eyring, the executive director of the nonprofit Theater Communications Group, which supports community theaters across the USA, told the New York Times that the funding "does not address the severity of the crisis in the not-for-profit arts field". The bill also requires the IRS to conduct a public campaign to alert all individuals of their eligibility for the rebate and how to receive it if they haven't filed either a 2019 or 2018 tax return. "After consultation with the state treasurer and state budget officials, the Department of Revenue will extend personal and corporate income tax deadlines during this challenging period".
