“We have to focus on that money. So people who make $ 300,000 don’t get a windfall,” Biden said on Feb. 5.
The latter proposal would draw a line in the sand to exclude individual taxpayers with oneof $ 100,000 a year and couples earn $ 200,000, according to The Washington Post. Note, that is without dependents. The way current mathematics works, a , or some other amount even if they otherwise cross the income line – it’s complicated.

It’s too early to say whether the IRS would automatically send a third check to the recipients, as it has done with the, or if the money would be packed in one or the like. We go through more possible scenarios for the .
