The legislation provides a payment of $1,400 for a single taxpayer or $2,800 for a married couple that files jointly, and $1,400 per dependent.

Individuals earning up to $75,000 get the full amount, and so do married couples who earn up to $150,000.

There is a hard cut-off at $80,000 for individuals and $160,000 for married couples. Income is based on your 2020 tax filing or your 2019 taxes if you haven’t filed yet.
