Tax Updates for Families

Congress has provided tax relief for families due to the Coronavirus outbreak. LongSchaefer is here to help you navigate the details of this economic lifeline.

Who is eligible?

Anyone individual made $99,000 or less, or a married couple filing jointly who made $198,000 or less, are eligible for some type of tax credit. Individuals who made $75,000 or less, or couples filing jointly who made $150,000 or less, receive the full amount of $1,200 or $2,400, respectively. The amount is reduced by $5 for each $100 above the two thresholds. 

Parents with children receive up to $500 for each qualifying child. In general, this means children 16 years old or younger who are dependent on their parents.

What do I do to receive this payment?

If you filed taxes in 2018 or 2019, you don’t have to do anything. The IRS will distribute money, either through direct deposit or by paper check, depending on how you received any tax refund during those tax years. 

The IRS can help you with any issues if you haven’t filed an income tax return or didn’t have to file one in the past two years. You have to at least file a simple tax return for 2019 to receive your payment.
