Millions Of Americans Get $1,400 Stimulus Checks: Check Eligibility
The IRS has begun sending letters to nine million families to notify those who haven't filed their taxes that they could get $1,400 stimulus cheques or $2,800 if married.
Americans who haven't yet claimed the third instalment of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan's stimulus payments can still do so if they file a tax return in 2021.
The benefit would go to people who haven't turned in their tax returns yet even though they were due in April.
The plan was one of the first big laws that the Democrat-controlled Congress passed and President
signed into law.
Included help with rent, tax rebates, money for distributing vaccines, and direct payments to Americans who were having trouble due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Americans can get the third stimulus check even if they didn't make any income last year, but there are income limits.
People with an adjusted gross income, which is the gross income minus certain adjustments, of $75,000 or less are eligible to get the full $1,400.
People who were the heads of households and made more than $112,500 did not qualify for the stimulus payments.
Couples who filed jointly and made less than $150,000 could also get up to $2,800 in stimulus checks.
