Recovery Rebates For Individuals
You and your family will receive rebates worth $1,200 for individuals ($2,400 for couples) and $500 per child under 17. (For example, a family of four would receive $3,400.)
Rebates phase out above $75,000 (single)/ $122,500 (head of household)/ $150,000 (joint). Each member of your family must have a Social Security Number (included on your last tax return) to claim a rebate.
You must file a tax return this year (or have filed last year) to receive a rebate check (or direct deposit). Rebates will start going out in the coming weeks. For more information click here.
