If you didn’t receive your stimulus check when the first batch was sent out last week, don’t worry. There is still a strong chance that you will receive the $1,400 COVID-19 relief check by the end of the month.
The IRS announced that it will be sending out the second batch of stimulus checks this week, with some landing in accounts by direct deposits and other physical checks and prepaid debit cards being sent out in the mail.
“Since this new set of payments will include more mailed payments, we urge people to carefully watch their mail for a check or debit card in the coming weeks,” IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig announced.
Additional groups of payments are expected to go out on a weekly basis.
Individual taxpayers who make less than $75,000 are eligible for the $1,400 checks. Smaller amounts will be issued to taxpayers who earn more than $80,000 a year.
An extra $1,400 check is awarded for each dependent child. Parents also gain a new annual tax credit of $3,000-$3,600 per child in the bill, up from $2,000 per child currently.
The bill also extends a $300 weekly unemployment supplement through September 6.
