The US House of Representatives and Senate will return from the summer break this month asover another and potentially one for , has stopped. However, both sides want to explore more financial support for Americans, and a Gallup poll released on September 1 shows two-party support for an additional stimulus payment from 70% of the 5,000 people surveyed.
Asthat came with in March another stimulus action would be based on your adjusted gross income, or AGI, from your . (Some people may even get even without additional direct payment in 2020.)
The proposals we have seen so far are. Although different, they both have the same incentive check as the CARES Act did: There are up to $ 1,200 for individual archives with an AGI of $ 75,000 per year, or $ 2,400 for joint filers earning less than $ 125,000 per year. While the Senate first plans to introduce one next week that does not include financing for a second incentive payment, it may lead to other smaller bills that include the money.
Here’s what an AGI is, how to find it and how to use it to estimate how much money you’re getting from a second stimulus check, provided a new bill passes.
What is your AGI and why do you need it?
Your AGI is your adjusted gross income – a measure of income calculated from your total income to determine how much the state can tax. Your gross income is the sum of all the money you earn in a year, including salaries, dividends, maintenance, capital gains, interest income, royalties, rental income and pension dividends. AGI factors allow allowable deductions from your gross income (such as student loan interest, maintenance or pension contributions) to find out how your income tax will be calculated. Your AGI is reported on IRS Tax Form 1040.
Because it is a rough estimate of how much money you take in after deducting all of your income streams, the IRS uses your AGI to calculate how much of the maximum $ 1200 stimulus check you can receive.

How to use your AGI to find out how much stimulus money you can get
Whether the HEALS Act should pass depends on how much money you get on a second stimulus check depending on your AGI, your application status (single versus joint) and how many people you have. You can check out our history atfor some examples of how it can break for you depending on your situation.
Individual taxpayers with social security numbers and AGIs below $ 75,000 will receive the full amount of $ 1,200. When your AGI rises, the amount you are entitled to decreases. If your AGI is $ 99,000 or higher, you will not be eligible for the stimulus check.
If you register as a household manager, you will receive the entire 1200 USD check if your AGI is 112,500 USD or less. The amount decreases until you reach $ 146,500, then you are not eligible.
If you are a married couple applying jointly without children and your AGI is less than $ 150,000, you will receive a payment of $ 2,400. That amount will decrease until you reach $ 198,000, then you are not eligible for a check.
