The first stimulus check of $1,200 was given out during the early stages of the pandemic when the trade had come to a standstill and many people had lost their jobs. This was followed by a $600 check in the month of December 2020. In the most recent round of distributions, checks of $1,400 are being distributed. These stimulus packages were based on the tax returns of 2019.
Since these packages were based on 2019 tax returns, now after compiling 2020 returns , people might get additional benefits in the form of “plus-up” payments. This is given after considering certain points. Addition of a member or decrease of net income during the year 2020 are some of the categories.
