NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Senate Republicans this week unveiled their new stimulus plan, which has a price tag of $1 trillion and includes a new round of stimulus checks for Americans who fall into certain income and tax brackets.
Assuming the HEALS Act becomes a reality, here's a calculator to help you figure out how much your stimulus check would likely be.
The criteria for the proposed new checks remains the same as before: Individuals making $75,000 a year or less can get $1,200, and couples making $175,000 or less can get $2,400.
Individuals making more than $99,000 a year and couples making more than $198,000 a year are not eligible.
But, there is one significant change this time around: In the past legislation, recipients could get an additional $500 for each dependent age 17 and under. The HEALS Act would remove the age requirement.
