Keep reading to find out what an AGI is, how to find it and how you can use it to estimate how much money you are getting from a second stimulus check.
What is an AGI and why do you need it?
Your AGI is your adjusted gross income – a measure of income calculated based on your total income to determine how much the government can tax. Your gross income is the sum of all the money you earn in a year, including salary, dividends, maintenance, capital gains, interest income, royalties, rental income and pension dividends. AGI factors in allowable deductions from your gross income (such as student loan interest, maintenance or pension contributions) to calculate 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 a maximum of $ 1200 stimulus check you can get.

How to use your AGI to find out how much stimulus money you are getting

Individual taxpayers with a social security number and an AGI under $ 75,000 will receive the full amount of $ 1,200. When your AGI increases, the amount you are entitled to decreases. If your AGI is $ 99,000 or higher, you will not be eligible for the stimulus check.
