THE STIMULUS BILL

SUMMARY OF THE STIMULUS BILL

On Friday, March 27, the President signed the massive $2 trillion coronavirus Stimulus Bill (the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security [CARES] Act) to provide assistance to workplaces and employees. The law provides many benefits intended to deliver cash into the hands of individuals and businesses, as well as many other tax provisions.

One of the most publicized portions of the law involves cash payments of $1,200 to individuals and $2400 to married couples.

An additional $500 may be paid for each qualifying child. These amounts are subject to reduction if the individual’s Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) exceeds $75,000 ($150,000 for a married couple). Nonresident alien individuals and a person who is the dependent of another is ineligible to receive the payment.

The cash payments will be based on the recent tax information available to the IRS, based on the 2018 or 2019 tax return filed, but is subject to a “true-up” based on 2020 tax return information.
