    Default We’ve Moved from ‘Partisan’ Period to Unanimous Passage of Coronavirus Bill

    To ALL OF THEM!!

    Probably the last time. But take note, they work TOGETHER, get shit done, get unanimous votes and it creates the largest and perhaps 'best' result in many years. Of course that's a lot of $$$, but with all things considered, we could be getting off lightly if we can save millions of lives here. Not to mention actually helping people!

    McConnell: We’ve Moved from ‘Partisan’ Period to Unanimous Passage of Coronavirus Bill

    During a press conference after the passage of the Senate’s coronavirus relief package on Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stated that “the Senate has pivoted from one of the most contentious, partisan periods in the nation’s history, to passing this rescue package 100-0, all in one quarter of this year.”

    McConnell said, “I think if I were writing your headline, I’d say the Senate has pivoted from one of the most contentious, partisan periods in the nation’s history, to passing this rescue package 100-0, all in one quarter of this year. From arguably the most partisan, divisive thing you could possibly do, to coming together entirely, 100 of us, to meet this challenge. I think it says a lot about the United States Senate as an institution, our willingness to put aside our differences to do something really significant for the country.”

    So who is going to get money? Well, it explains below. Last I heard us veterans and people on SS were only going to get HALF what everyone else gets, but now there's no mention of that. Also, Trump and others were saying that people were hurting NOW, and that they needed money RIGHT AWAY, so they want checks to go out like within like the next THREE WEEKS. Well FORGET THAT folks. If you don't have a direct deposit on file with the IRS for them to direct deposit the money, you're probably SCREWED, and they could take until DEC. 31ST to get money to you. I tell ya... they say one thing and then do another, every stinkin' time...

    Do you qualify for a stimulus check in Senate’s coronavirus response bill?

    One of the cornerstones of the Senate coronavirus stimulus package is the direct payment of money from the federal government to American individuals and families.

    In the middle of the bill's hundreds of pages are details regarding exactly who can expect to receive money and how much they can expect. Here is a breakdown.

    Who is eligible?

    The bill makes clear that everyone is eligible except for nonresident aliens and those who can be used as the basis for deductions for another person.

    "Seniors, veterans, the unemployed and low-income Americans would be eligible too," Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said Wednesday.

    The bill text indicates those who receive social security can collect checks: For those not required to file 2018 or 2019 tax returns because of social security benefits, tax returns aren’t required to claim the money -- the government can use information from a Form SSA-1099, Social Security Benefit Statement, or Form RRB-1099, Social Security Equivalent Benefit Statement.

    With that in mind, here is how much people can expect to get.

    People filing individually

    People who file their taxes as individuals are eligible for payments up to $1,200, but that decreases for people who earn an adjusted gross income of more than $75,000 a year. The bill says that the payment is reduced by five percent of every dollar above that mark, or $50 for every $1,000 above $75,000.

    What that ultimately means is that for people who make more than $75,000 the payment is less the higher their earnings are, with it being reduced to zero for those who make $99,000 or more.

    People filing jointly

    Couples who file a joint tax return are eligible for a payment of up to $2,400, plus and additional $500 per child. However, that amount decreases for couples whose adjusted gross income is more than $150,000 in a year at the same rate of 5 percent of every dollar above that mark.

    This translates to less money the more people make, with it being reduced to zero for joint filers without children who earn $198,000 or more.

    People filing as heads of households

    People who file as heads of households are eligible for payments of up to $1,200, but that amount is increased by $500 per child. That amount is reduced for people who earn an adjusted gross income of more than $112,000 a year. The extent to which it is decreased, of course, depends on how many children they have, as illustrated by the chart above.

    The following chart, courtesy of the Tax Foundation, illustrates how it all works.

    Chart at link...

    Income is based on people's tax filings for 2019, but if they have not filed for that year, then their filing for 2018 applies.

    "[I]f the individual has not filed a tax return for such individual's first taxable year beginning in 2018," the bill says, the information should be used for 2019 provided in their SSA-1099 or RRB-1099 Social Security Benefit Statements.

    When and how are payments made?

    Payments, according to the bill, will be made “as rapidly as possible” and no later than Dec. 31, 2020. They will be made via direct deposit to an account that the person has authorized for tax refunds or federal payments on or after Jan. 1, 2018.

    Notice will be sent to the person’s last known address within 15 days of payment informing them of the method and amount of payment. A phone number will also be provided so people can call the IRS in the event they did not receive it.

    "What about people on Social Security? People on Social Security are eligible to receive the coronavirus relief payment as long as their total income does not exceed the limit.

    Low-income Americans on Social Security do not need to file a tax return. As long as they received an SSA-1099 form (the Social Security benefit statement)...

    The federal government will be able to send them a payment via the usual way they get their Social Security payment. Retirees and people on disability are both eligible for the special payment."
