Economic Impact Payments

(Updated as of 4/6/2020)

On March 30th, the Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service announced that distribution of economic impact payments would begin within three weeks and would be distributed automatically, with no action required for most people. The IRS will calculate and automatically send the economic impact payment to those eligible.

Eligibility

  • Tax filers with adjusted gross income up to $75,000 for individuals and up to $150,000 for married couples filing joint returns will receive the full payment as listed below.
      • $1,200 for individuals
      • $2,400 for married couples
      • Up to $500 for each qualifying child
  • For filers with income above those amounts, the payment is reduced by $5 for each $100 above the $75,000/$150,000 thresholds.
  • Social Security recipients and railroad retirees who are otherwise not required to file a tax return are also eligible and will not be required to file a return.
      • The IRS will use the information on the Form SSA-1099 or Form RRB-1099 to generate Economic Impact Payments to recipients of benefits reflected in the Form SSA-1099 or Form RRB-1099 who are not required to file a tax return and did not file a return for 2018 or 2019. This includes senior citizens, Social Security recipients and railroad retirees who are not otherwise required to file a tax return.  Since the IRS would not have information regarding any dependents for these people, each person would receive $1,200 per person, without the additional amount for any dependents at this time.
  • Single filers with income exceeding $99,000 and $198,000 for joint filers with no children are not eligible.

Note: IRS will determine amounts based on either 2019 or 2018 filed tax returns.

Payment Distribution

  • The IRS will calculate payment amounts using your 2019 tax return.  If you have not yet filed your 2019 return, information from your 2018 return will be used instead.
  • The economic impact payment will be deposited directly into the same banking account reflected on the return filed; otherwise, a check will be issued.
  • For security reasons, the IRS plans to mail a letter about the economic impact payment to the taxpayer’s last known address within 15 days after the payment is paid. The letter will provide information on how the payment was made and how to report any failure to receive the payment. If a taxpayer is unsure, they’re receiving a legitimate letter, the IRS urges taxpayers to visit IRS.gov first to protect against scam artists.

The IRS has established a special section on its web site focused on steps to help taxpayers, businesses and others affected by the coronavirus.  For details, visit www.irs.gov/coronavirus.

Help for Small Businesses and Non-Profits

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) offers Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) to help businesses survive until normal operations resume after a disaster. They may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact. We encourage all businesses with potential cash flow issues caused by the coronavirus to explore this option.

These loans offer:

  • Amounts up to $2 million
  • Interest rates of 3.75% for small businesses and 2.75% for non-profits (as of 3/27)
  • Repayment terms of up to 30 years

You may be eligible for an EIDL if you are located in a declared disaster area and are one of the following types of businesses:

  • Small Business
  • Small agricultural cooperative
  • Most private nonprofit organizations
