    I haven’t read the entire thread, so not sure if this has been discussed already, but did the last stimulus package give free money to people without taxable income? I seem to remember that it didn’t, but I’m not 100% sure.

    Retired people that weren't paying taxes still got money from it. People that just didn't have a job and didn't work the previous year didn't get one. People that had a job, paid taxes during the year but got a refund equal or in excess of what they paid in taxes the previous year still got a check for the stimulus package.

    I’m wondering what the income limit will be. Anyone want to make a guess?

    If they’re asking for $150 billion for this first string of checks, and assuming $2k check per person, that would cover a little over a half of taxpayers, or about everyone making less than $65k a year. If they do $1500 per check, they will cover a lot more people.

    Of course it's a bad idea. But they're gonna do what they've always done, namely be terrible at money management and spend their money on stupid shit.

    Just looked at their parameters for the stimulus allotment. Upper middle class get nothing but have to pay for everything.

    It looks like the only people who will get the 1000 will be those that dont pay taxes

    Only the absolute poor that rely on Government will get them, instead of everyone

    If you don't pay any federal taxes it generally means you're not working. If you're not a worker why would you get a stimulus bump to offset laid off workers?

    Ah, Gandhi. The ultimate virtue signaler.

    Being an asshole signaler is much better. Not only should non income tax payers not get a check, they should GIVE a check! Maybe getting to pay into the system for once instead of just taking from it (the way they're used to do doing) will motivate them to shape up.

    it is up to $4500 and some people have to care for their elderly parents or children and have no income to pay taxes on. If you were working until the coronavirus then you are the ones that shouldnt get money because you were getting money constantly every 2 weeks.

    and also the schools are all closed, colleges are closed, and now some retired people are basically full time daycare workers that have to somehow feed people even though no food is available.

    Me......I got like a 5 year supply of everything and if that runs out i always got ammo.....

    Are people who are filling out a tax form for the first time this year screwed?

    I don't need 1000 and I won't even qualify for it in the first place.

    Not if they already filled it out and they were accepted, I saw that there was a provision in it for people that didn't file taxes for 2018 but filed for 2019. But seeing as how 2019 taxes aren't even due yet, there's probably some people that would fall into that category but just haven't filed their 2019 taxes yet.
