Third Stimulus Check: One million more Americans can expect additional COVID-19 relief checks
(Fintech Zoom) – As part of the American Rescue Plan, 460,000 taxpayers are eligible for more money now that their 2020 returns have been processed.
Those include individuals or households that didn’t qualify for a stimulus check based on their 2019 income or got less than they were due.
The so-called “plus-up” payments apply to those whose 2020 income was significantly less than what they had in 2019.
Parents who had a child or added a dependent between 2019 and 2020 are also eligible for additional relief.
To find out if you are eligible or to track your payment, you are encouraged to use the IRS “get my payment tool” at irs.gov
