Gov. Larry Hogan wants state lawmakers to pass a $1 billion COVID-19 economic relief bill that includes stimulus payments for about 400,000 eligible Marylanders.
The Republican said Monday that the bill, if passed, would provide a total of $270 million in stimulus money to individuals and families who qualified for the Earned Income Tax Credit in 2019 and 2020.
Marylanders would qualify for these payments who annually earn:
$50,954 ($56,844 married filing jointly) with three or more qualifying children
$47,440 ($53,330 married filing jointly) with two qualifying children
$41,756 ($47,646 married filing jointly) with one qualifying child
$15,820 ($21,710 married filing jointly) with no qualifying children
Families would receive up to $750 and individuals would receive up to $450 under the "RELIEF Act," which Hogan will ask legislators to pass when they convene for the first time in 2021 on Wednesday.
