The US Government has executed its stimulus checks program to reach 2 million families across the Nation. The third wave of the checks is ongoing and is behaving like a push-up to the upcoming stimulus check. A total of 171M have been issued and the Revenue System has claimed that the program is costing around $400 billion. The Treasury and Fiscal Services are also taking part with the IRS for the estimation of this budget.
Why Are More Stimulus Checks Being Issued?
The Rescue Plan was enacted by the US Government and due to the Act, the citizens are qualified for more money in the form of the stimulus check. The Act was called into action after Joe Biden authorized it in March. The Tax Department has stated that the money received by the citizens is now just top-up payments as several people did not receive the entire $1,400.They failed to qualify for such as they had not filed their 2019 tax returns.
The citizens will now be able to ask for aid as they can file their 2020 tax returns in the current year. This will add 900,000 individuals to the previous mix of qualified citizens for the stimulus checks. 1.3M Americans had not got any kind of aid as the tax department failed to initiate contact with them. They are now being added to the system and are eligible to receive some amount from the Government.
The $1,400 can be received after filing the return which would reflect the AGI ( Total income – Deductions) which is calculated to be less than $75,000. The AGI threshold will be lower than $150,000 when an American couple files their returns together.
