Payments are determined by the IRS based on previously reported income. For specifics regarding payment amounts refer to the IRS website for more information.
Individuals with adjusted gross incomes of up to $75,000 in 2019 will receive a direct payment of $600 per adult and $600 per child under the age of 17. This is $100 more per child than was allocated for in the CARES Act, but $600 less per adult. Married couples with adjusted gross incomes of less than $150,000 will receive $1,200 in direct relief and $600 per child under the age of 17. Individuals who file as “head of household” with adjusted gross incomes of up to $112,500 are eligible for a $600 payment and $600 per child under the age of 17. Mixed-immigration-status families, whose members include people with different citizenship or immigration statuses, will be eligible for payments based on IRS criteria. Those making more than the above amounts may qualify for a reduced payment, up to certain adjusted gross incomes.
