The third stimulus payment is already being delivered to taxpayers all over the United States. That’s why today we bring you everything you need to know about your stimulus payment, from how to check the status of your payment to how much you would receive

What Do I Have to Do to Get My Payment?

The third round of Economic Impact Payments is delivered automatically, which means that in most cases you don’t have to take any action to get your payment. A lot of people will receive the third payment in the same way they received the previous two.

How Can I Check the Status of My Payment?

Knowing when and how the IRS will send your payment is quite easy thanks to the internet. All you have to do is access the online tool Get my Payment and enter all the necessary information. The IRS asks taxpayers not to call if they need to check the status of their payments. Use the online tool instead and keep in mind that it’s updated once a day, usually overnight, so there’s no need to check more than once a day.

How Much Will I Get?

Most people will receive $1,400 plus $1,400 for every qualifying dependent that they claim on their tax return.

Remember that the eligible income levels have changed for the third round of payments. This means that some people who qualified for the first and second payments won’t be eligible for the third one. Payments will begin to be reduced for people who earn $75,000 or more in Adjusted Gross Income (or $150,000 for married couples filing jointly).

At What Level of Income Do the Payments Stop?

Reduced payments stop at $80,000 Adjusted Gross Income for individuals ($160,000 for married couples). Taxpayers with income above those levels are not eligible for the third Economic Impact Payment.
