The US government offers incentive payments to Americans

 The US government offers incentive payments to Americans

The U.S. Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service said that with the second round of stimulus payments sent to the federal government, Americans are expected to see $ 600 in their bank accounts immediately.


Direct deposit will continue until next week, and paper checks will be mailed to us starting Wednesday.

 Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin said on Tuesday that the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service are launching a second round of payments "at an unprecedented rate."

President Donald Trump's Covid-19 relief plan signed Sunday night is for individuals who meet the $ 600 income threshold; Spouses who meet the income threshold ($ 1,200); Eligible families need an additional 600 per child.

The $ 600 is half what Americans received in the first round of stimulus payments that Congress approved in March.

 After the first Covid-19 relief bill was passed, it took the IRS two weeks to start sending the money - but after a few months, some eligible recipients did not receive the money.

An individual's most recent tax return determines their eligibility for incentive payments.

Anyone with a personal income of less than $ 75,000 or a married couple with an income of less than $ 150,000 would receive the full amount

Trump said in a statement on Sunday that after confirming that the Senate was considering legislation to increase the amount Americans receive to $ 2,000, Trump only signed a second relief plan worth $ 900 billion from COVID-19.

On Monday, the House of Representatives approved a measure to increase the stimulus payments to $ 2,000, but due to opposition from the Republican majority in the Senate, 

the payments increase bill alone has little hope in the Senate due to opposition from most Republicans in the Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Mitch McConnell) introduced a piece of legislation Tuesday that combines increased stimulus payments

 with Trump two demands that Democrats confirm their rejection of their opposition to so-called Section 230 abolishing online liability protections, and the creation of a committee to study voter fraud.
