Recently, the Senate has passed a two trillion dollar stimulus bill, known as the Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, in order to help assist individuals and businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

This bill helps individuals who make under 75,000, married couples who make under 150,000, and people who are either unemployed, have student loans, or a freelancer. Including extending the deadline for tax returns and insurance coverage COVID-19 treatments.

It is important to note that cash payments are based on either your 2018 or 2019 tax returns. If you made less in 2019 than 2018 it is imperative to do your tax return for 2019 as soon as possible. The Federal government has extended the due date for tax filing and tax payment from April 15th, 2020 to July 15, 2020.
