WASHINGTON – White House and Senate leaders announced a $ 2 billion patient response Wednesday that included sending checks to people across the country affected by coronavirus crisis.
The package offers one-time payments of $ 1,200 for adults and $ 500 for children under 17. Couples will receive $ 2,400.
However, the payoff is set aside for those making more than $ 75,000. For every $ 100 you earn over the limit, payments fall by $ 5.
People making more than $ 99,000 and couples making more than $ 198,000 will not be eligible to pay.
The amount will be determined based on the tax return of 2019. If the 2019 tax return is not lower, the 2018 tax return will be used. Last week, a request for Treasury on Capitol Hill announced the start date of April 6 with a second screening process going through May 18.
