President Trump issued an emergency declaration providing taxpayers a deadline extension to file their taxes from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020.
President Trump signed an emergency economic package into law that will provide relief for certain citizens. This legislation only authorizes a one-time payment. There’s no need to sign-up. Payments will be automatic for those who filed a tax return or recently received Social Security benefits. The IRS will post updates on its website. This is how the checks will be calculated:
For those who made less than $75,000 in 2019, you will be eligible for the full payment of $1,200.
Couples who filed jointly and made less than $150,000 will receive $2,400.
An individual who filed as "head of household" and earned $112,500 or less will receive $1,200.
For every child in the household, households will receive an additional $500.
For those who made more than $75,000 in 2019, their payment will be reduced by $5 for every $100 of income that exceeds the limit. The payment decreases to zero for an individual making $99,000 or more or a couple making $198,000 or more.
