The United States federal government has paid millions of its citizens, tax credits, and stimulus checks as it tries to provide some relief economically. There have been three rounds of stimulus, and several more tax refunds and amendments aiming to give stimulus checks to the people.
The Maximum Stimulus Check Amount You Can Get
Unfortunately, the fourth round of stimulus checks is highly unlikely currently. But, the total amount of money that Americans will be getting by the time the year ends is quite surprising. The Motley Fool reported the amount in a recent article.
They referred to the latest analysis done by the Economic Policy and Taxation Institute. The analysis revealed that the total amount of money sent via federal stimulus checks averages about $3,450 for the majority of Americans.
This average amount, however, is only for those citizens whose AGI is below $65,000. In other words, it is for the last 60% of American earners. The $3,450 stimulus check amount also does not take into account the CTC that was temporarily expanded earlier in the year.
The analysis of the Institute also looked at the average amount that a normal American household will be getting as stimulus checks, in every income threshold. As a result, it is a comprehensive report on how much can be expected as stimulus money by the end of 2021.
In brief: for AGIs below $21,300 – expected stimulus money is $3,590; AGI between $21,300 and $39,800 – the amount falls to $3,340. It carries on similarly until AGIs are above $601,700 where the expected stimulus money is believed to be only $50.
As the report shows, Americans whose earning is on the lower side, will be benefitting the most. The report estimated that earnings will increase by nearly 33% for households that earn below $21,300 in 2021.
