Today many taxpayers woke up to find they had more money in their bank accounts thanks to the Third Round of Stimulus checks.
On March 11 President Biden signed the American Rescue Act (ARA) into law. The ARA provides up to $1,400 for eligible taxpayers ($2,800 per married couple) and an additional $1,400 per adult dependent children.
The stimulus payment is tied to your 2020 federal adjusted gross income (AGI) if you have already filed your 2020 return; or your 2019 AGI if you have not filed your 2020 return yet. The stimulus payment will phase out for single taxpayers with income between $75,000 and $80,000, heads of household with incomes between$112,500 and $120,000 and couples filing jointly with income between $150,000 and $160,000.
So if the Treasury Department has your bank account information on file, you should keep checking your bank account for your direct deposit. If your bank information is not on record, you will receive payment in the form of a paper check or debit card so keep an eye on your mail. And double check anything that looks like a credit or debit card.
