IRS Site Eligibility FAQ

Stimulus Check

Who Gets a Check?

Not everyone is eligible for this payment. If you’ve already filed for 2020, the IRS will base your payment off your most recent filing. If not, it will use your 2019 filing as a qualifier for the relief funds. Here's what you can expect:

  • Single taxpayers making $75,000 or less will receive $1,400
  • Married couples with no children earning $150,000 or less will receive a total of $2,800
  • Up to $1,400 for each dependent, regardless of age
  • If your adjusted gross income was greater than $80,000 as an individual, or greater than $160,000 filing jointly, your economic impact payment decreases to zero.

When Should I Expect My Payment?

Some may see the direct deposit payments as pending or as provisional payments as early as March 12. The IRS reminds taxpayers that the payments are automatic, and they should not contact their financial institutions or the IRS with payment timing questions.

The IRS Get My Payment tool will be available starting on Monday, March 15.
