Prisoners, Americans Behind on Child Support Won’t Get New Stimulus Checks

Earlier, Pelosi said on Tuesday she did not believe Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell was ready to reach an agreement on coronavirus relief legislation.

The guidelines are pretty much the same as the first round of payments under the CARES Act. Those who have past-due child support payments, prisoners, and people who died prior to January 1 of this year will not receive the payments.

President Trump took to Twitter on Friday to accuse the Democrats of holding up another round of economic impact payments to American households, amid ongoing stimulus discussions on Capitol Hill. Also, anyone who died prior to January 2020 will not be eligible for a payment, nor is anyone who is incarcerated at the time the payment is processed by the Treasury, or anyone imprisoned for the duration of 2020. "Furthermore, any individual in prison for all of 2020 is ineligible to claim the rebate as a 2020 tax credit", the memo said. A frequent point of criticism against the CARES Act was that many families with dependents didn't receive the payments, but under the HEALS Act, dependents of any age can get the $500. Senate Republicans have a direct payment in the HEALS Act.

The payments would be $1,200 per adult for those with adjusted gross incomes of up to $75,000. For those earning more than $99,000, or $146,500 for heads of household with one child and $198,000 for join filers without children, the benefit phases out entirely.

Like the CARES Act, Americans without income or those who receive federal benefits will be eligible for the full amount.

The IRS will still use 2019 or 2018 tax returns to send out the checks.
