What exactly is a ‘targeted’ stimulus check and why do some legislators want it instead?
The simple explanation is that some people worry that a $ 1,400 stimulus check will go to some of the people with relatively high incomes. For example, use oura person can earn $ 102,900 per year (their ) and still get a partial payment … of $ 5.
The thing is, if lawmakers want people who earn less than $ 75,000 a year to get $ 1,400, it will require adjustments in the way things are done. One way would be to get thethat was used in the first two controls. Another would be to present a random cutoff (for example, a check would only go out to people making less than a certain amount per year, according to their AGI). A third could be to decrease the maximum amount of the next stimulus payment (because, math). Our .

Is the $ 1,000 check in the $ 600 billion GOP stimulus plan still in effect?
In recent days, Biden and his government have made it clear that it will not try to change histo fit into a $ 600 billion counter-proposal drafted by a group of 10 moderate Republican senators. Biden wants to keep both the baseball field price tag on the bill and the , saying the Republican bid was “not even in the cards,” Politico and other outlets reported.
“We can’t walk away from an extra $ 1,400 in direct checks that we’ve proposed because the people need them,” Biden said in a phone call on Wednesday with Congressional Democrats, according to a source speaking to The Hill. “We better target them.”
On Wednesday night, Biden thanked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a tweet for her “continued leadership” after leading the House in voting to clear the path to pass Biden’s.
We have a better idea of the new stimulus control timeline
With a smaller, patchy bill that focuses on a third stimulus control andOff the table, Democrats are now looking for a March 14 passage for the next incentive bill. But even if Congress could meet that precise date, it doesn’t mean you would get your money immediately.
There are many variables we can guess based on the initial check that can affect you personally, and others that we don’t know the answer to until we can review the text of a final incentive invoice. For example,could have a dramatic effect on – we’ll have to see how it all turns out.
In the meantime, we have mapped out some data adepending on who you are.
How long should the IRS be sending new checks. Would there be another deadline?
The IRS and the Treasury Department are moving at lightning speed, starting within days of the signing of former President Donald Trump . They had no choice. The language of the invoice only offered a 17-day window to send the checks before the deadline imposed. There were , and now will have to . (Yes, , also.)
It’s too early to say whether the IRS would automatically send a third check to recipients, as they have done with the, or if the money would be packed in one . or the like. We go through more possible scenarios for the .
Can the eligibility requirements for incentive checks change with the third payment?
Biden proposes two changes that are popular among Democratic lawmakers. The first would expand qualifications to, including 13.5 million more people, according to the People’s Policy Project, such as students, and dependents of all ages with disabilities (not just persons under 17 years of age). The $ 600 billion Republican proposal would count $ 500 per dependent of any age (PDF).
The second eligibility change includes all ““with one or more family members who are not US citizens. For example, if the parents are not US citizens but their children, who were born in the US, are. The second incentive controls .
Some families can get more money next time, even with a targeted check
A higher maximum total per person is the obvious way your household would receive more money from a third check than from the second, but there’s more to it. Because the upper limit for the, with an extra , the route , more people hit the income threshold for receiving a second payment, which means they will all the way.
A third stimulus check could create more groups of people(namely who pay taxes), and bring a larger check total to qualified individuals and their families. A change in your circumstances could mean that you qualify for more money this time. Here are other ways a in your pocket.
If there is a payment of $ 1,400, can some people still get $ 2,000?
Biden’s incentive plan requires the next check to be up to $ 1,400 per eligible adult – not the $ 2,000 some originally expected. The idea is that this third check “raises” the maximum of $ 600 outlined in the second incentive check to $ 2,000 once you combine the totals per person – but without taking into account.
One question is whether, if the qualifications were expanded to new groups of people not included in the first round, the new recipients could get the full $ 2,000 amount. There hasn’t been any significant public discussion on the topic, so it’s one we’ll continue to follow, but we wouldn’t necessarily hold our breath.
