Coronavirus: How much money could you get from stimulus check?

Coronavirus - Here is what is in the $2 trillion stimulus bill

The Senate passed a bipartisan bill Wednesday night to put money directly into the pockets of Americans who need it during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bill, which has to be passed by the House and signed by the president, could give single adults up to $1,200 if they earn up to $75,000, married couples get $2,400 if they earn under $150,000 adjusted gross income. Families with children will get an additional $500 per child, CNN reported.

But if you make more than the limits for the full payout, you may still qualify for a partial check.

Singles can make up to $99,000, married couples can earn up to $198,000, and still get a reduced check.

If you want to see how much you could get, The Washington Post has created a calculator, which can be found here.

If you filed your 2019 taxes, then the government will use the direct deposit information and deposit it into your account. If there’s no account on record, then you’ll get a check, the Post reported.

If you haven’t filed yet, the government will use the information on your 2018 return.
