Coronavirus Stimulus Check Eligibility Requirements

In the last 24 hours, the United States officially surpassed every country with most coronavirus cases. While the economic damages of the coronavirus continue, the House passed the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill.

As part of this, Americans will receive checks up to $1,200. If your adjusted gross income is below $75,000 you’ll get the full $1,200 check. Those who make more than $75,000 will receive reduced checks. Over $99,000, the checks will phase out completely.

The eligibility for the coronavirus checks is determined by your adjusted gross income on your 2019 tax return. If you haven’t filed your tax return yet, then it will be based on your 2018 tax return.

Here is how much you are going to get with the $2 trillion coronavirus relief bill.
