Many Americans can expect to receive the full $1,400 stimulus checks if the Senate approves the third relief package[/caption]
If there is no amendment made to the stimulus check portion of the bill, individuals earning less than $75,000 and married couples earning less than $150,000 while filing jointly will receive the full payments.
Families will also receive another $1,400 for each dependent, so an eligible couple with one child could get a stimulus check for $4,200.
A qualifying family of four would get $5,600.
Biden’s proposed relief plan includes larger checks & allots more money for dependents[/caption]
The IRS will use your most recent tex return to determine eligibility, according to Yahoo! Finance, so if you already filed your 2020 taxes ahead of the April 15 deadline, the government will use the Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) from that return.
The AGI is your taxable income minus either the standard deduction or itemized deductions.
Individuals who made more than $75,000 and couples who made more than $150,000 may still qualify for some payment – depending on the AGI.
Like the previous two stimulus packages, the payments will completely phase out for individuals who make more than $100,000 and couples who make more than $200,000.

The relief package will also provide extended unemployment benefits.
If the bill is approved by mid-March, stimulus checks could begin going out to Americans the week of March 22.
