In accordance with the economic aid package, individual taxpayers will receive 1 of 200 dollars if their adjusted gross income (AGI) is less than $ 75,000 per year. Those who earn more than $ 75,000 will receive less, depending on the total AGI.

Couples will receive $ 2,400 if they earn less than 150 thousand dollars of adjusted gross income. Taxpayers will also receive $ 500 for each of his children, no matter how high their income.
