CORONAVIRUS: Direct Payments to Lower- and Middle-Income Individuals and Families
The American Rescue Plan provided for a third round of "Economic Impact Payments" (EIPs) to provide direct payments to individuals and families. Generally, individuals with income below $75,000 are eligible for the full $1,400 payment. Many individuals have already received their EIP as a direct deposit, check, or on a debit card. This round of payments has also been expanded to include all qualifying dependents so that college students, adults with disabilities and parents and grandparents that are claimed as dependents on an individual's tax return are all eligible.
For individuals still waiting for their EIP, who have questions or problems with their EIP, or who have received the EIP of a deceased family member, more information and guidance is available from the IRS here, or please call the IRS hotline at 800-919-9835.
