How much money will you receive in stimulus deal?

(WKOW) -- The U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote on the stimulus package Friday, but many Americans are wondering how much money they are set to receive in one-time direct checks from the government.

As of right now, many single people will probably see a $1,200 check. This comes for Americans making under $75,000 a year. The more money you make, either as a single person or a married couple, the less you will see from the government.

Unless you've already filed your 2019 tax return, this will be based on your adjusted gross 2018 income.

Single Americans

  • $75,000 = $1,200
  • $80,000 = $950
  • $85,000 = $700
  • $90,000 = $450
  • $95,000 = $200
  • $99,000+ = $0

Married Couples

  • $150,000 = $2,400
  • $160,000 = $1,900
  • $170,000 = $1,400
  • $180,000 = $900
  • $190,000 = $400
  • $198,000+ = $0

There is also a $500 rebate per child, but that's not included for higher incomes.

If you're receiving unemployment checks, the stimulus package includes an extra $600 a week on top of your current payment.

The Trump Administration is aiming to get checks sent by April 6. It could take four or five weeks for to reach people by mail, but those who get direct deposit could see it sooner.

President Trump has indicated that he'll sign the bill if the package passes in the House.
