BALTIMORE, MD –
Do you need to give your account information to the IRS to get your stimulus package? The IRS just launched a new site to make it easy.
When it was announced that American citizens would be receiving a stimulus check, questions followed. My questions, were centered around how the money would be distributed. Judging by the IRS’ response, they were prepared to answer that question.
The IRS and lawmakers informed the public that the funds will be deposited into citizens’ accounts. Those who have filed federal taxes in recent years may already be enrolled in direct deposit. For the 15 million households who didn’t file taxes in 2019, getting their stimulus check may have seemed difficult. After opening the new site Friday (April 10), the process is made simple. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin describes the site as “a tool for Americans who are not required to file tax returns to make sure they receive their payment as quickly and safely as possible.”
It’s a historical and bi-partisan bill that will be remembered forever. “At last, we have a deal. After days of intense discussions, the Senate has reached a bipartisan agreement on a historic relief package for this pandemic,” Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on the senate floor. A historic $2 trillion agreement was made to pay Americans for COVID-19 hardships.
The bill sees that every American gets $1,200. Couples receive $2,400 and household will receive $500 per child.
