Millions Of Americans Now Eligible For $1,400 Stimulus Checks From The IRS & Additional $2,800 Checks For Married Couples

The IRS has started sending letters to around nine million households nationwide reminding Americans who have not yet filed their tax returns this year that they could be eligible for $1,400 stimulus checks — or even $2,800 checks for married couples.

Americans who haven’t yet claimed the third installment of stimulus payments that were sent out by virtue of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan can still do so — if they file a 2021 tax return.

The benefit would be applied to those who have yet to file their returns that were due this past April. The plan, one of the first major pieces of legislation passed by the Democrat-controlled Congress and signed into law by President Joe Biden, included rental assistance, tax rebates, vaccine distribution funds, and direct payments to Americans who were struggling due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The federal government under the Trump administration began sending direct checks to Americans in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, when state governors began mandating lockdowns and business closures to mitigate the spread of the virus.

Households should check their mailboxes for letters from the IRS, according to The Washington Post.

Americans can claim the third stimulus check even if they didn’t have an income last year — though there are income caps. Those with an adjusted gross income — which is gross income minus certain adjustments — of $75,000 or less are eligible to get the full $1,400.

Those filing as head of household and earning at least $112,500 were not eligible for the stimulus payments. Married couples who filed jointly and earned less than $150,000 were also eligible for stimulus checks as high as $2,800.
