The shutdown and social distancing due to the COVID-19 outbreak are taking a toll on all sectors of the economy and the lives of most individuals. It has become difficult for many to sustain themselves and their families during this lockdown period, a situation that has seen more than 16 million Americans registering for unemployment. The IRS has stepped in with Coronavirus Aid, better known as COVID-19 Stimulus Checks under the Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act to give financial relief to the majority of Americans. In this post, we share a guide for getting COVID-19 Stimulus Checks. Read on.

Check if you qualify and the amount you stand to receive

Most people are eligible to get a stimulus if they meet the required threshold. If you do not file taxes or receive Social Security benefits, you qualify for a Stimulus Check. You may also have been exempt from filing unfiled tax returns in the past because your income did not qualify to file for tax returns, you are eligible to receive payment. Here are the categories in which the IRS will qualify individuals for the economic impact payments and the amount of money they will receive:

  • Single or married filing separately
    If your filing status is single or married but filing separately, and your adjusted gross income is less than $100,000, you qualify to receive $1,200 per individual.
  • Married filing jointly
    If you are married, the title reflects on your filing status, you file tax returns jointly, and your joint income is below $198,000, you will receive $2,400.
  • Household
    If your filing status is head of household, and your adjusted gross income (AGI) is not more than $136,500, you will receive $1,200 and an additional $500 for children below the age of 17.

What are the requirements?

While some individuals will automatically receive their payment without taking any action, others are required to submit the necessary information, as the IRS may not have sufficient information such as the taxpayer’s account details and residential address. You will have to submit your personal information to the IRS to receive payments. The IRS launched two web portals through which individuals can upload their details to receive economic impact payments – one for those that have already filed their returns and the other for those with unfiled tax returns for the periods 2018 and 2019. You can also count on unfiled tax help from IRS tax attorneys to navigate the requirements for Stimulus Checks.

When will I receive payment?

The IRS began giving out economic impact payments in April 2020. Some payments are deposited directly into the bank accounts of recipients while others are sent by check. You will have to wait a little bit longer if the IRS is sending you a check.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
