Here's When You Can Expect To Get Your $600 Stimulus Check

Here's When You Can Expect To Get Your $600 Stimulus Check

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced in a statement on Tuesday that the money was beginning to be distributed, firstly as direct deposits then with paper checks to start being sent out on Wednesday.

Mnuchin said the direct deposits payments will be distributed to some Americans tonight and run through the end of next week, while physical checks will be mailed out Wednesday, December 30.

Some Americans may have already received a second round of COVID relief payments.

$600 is the baseline for the direct payments going to Americans for economic relief.

Similar to the first payments early this year, the new $600 amount will be sent to all eligible Americans and $1,200 will be given for married couples. If additional legislation is enacted to provide for an additional amount, the Economic Impact Payments that have been issued will be topped up as quickly as possible. There is no need for action on your part, these payments will automatically appear.

Mnuchin says later this week, you can check the status of your payment here. Couples who make up to $150,000 annually will receive $1200. This means that people whose direct deposit information is with the IRS will get the money soon, as was expected. A family of four, however, could get up to $2,400 in stimulus payment.

Plus, eligible individuals will receive $600 for each of their under-17 dependents.

Your 2018 tax year income won't be used to determine eligibility if you haven't filed for 2019. In addition, those with qualifying children will also receive $600 for each qualifying child. Payments are also automatic for anyone who successfully registered for the first payment online at IRS.gov using the agency's Non-Filers tool by November 21, 2020 or who submitted a simplified tax return that has been processed by the IRS.

President Donald Trump and Democrats are pushing to give people more in stimulus, totaling $2,000 for individuals and $4,000 for couples.

It's unclear if enough Senate Democrats will rally behind an attempted filibuster, or if the override vote will proceed without McConnell agreeing to a deal on $2,000 checks.
