The Senate just passed a massive coronavirus relief package which is about to pass in the House. It means financial relief for many sectors of our economy, but the part we all want to know about is the part that includes direct payments to US. The people. And the big questions we all have: How much am I getting, and when am I getting it?

They go by the last tax return you filed, and a lot of people may not have filed for 2019 yet, but . . .

For a family of four, the maximum you'll get will be $3400.

If you made under $75,000 in 2019, you get the full payment of $1,200. Couples who filed jointly and made less than $150,000 will get $2,400.

An individual who filed as "head of household" and made $112,500 or less receives $1,200. 

For each child in your household, they'll add $500.

If you made more than $75,000, they reduce your payment by $5 for every $100 you made above the limit. In other words, if you earned $80,000 in 2019, you get $950.

The bad news: If as an individual you made $99,000 or more or as a couple you made $198,000 or more, no payment for you.

And when will you get this money? They're going to mail checks within three weeks. If you've gotten a tax refund in the last couple of years and it's been direct-deposited into your account, that's how you'll get your coronavirus payment. (They're the government -- they'll find you!)
