Short Tid Bits
If you have not received your stimulus check yet the IRS has hired 3,000 phone operators to answer your questions. This was a hard phone number to find.
You need to have filed your 2018 tax return at the least. You may need some information from your 2018 or 2019 tax return.
Will it happen? How much?
There was talk of $2,000. As of recent (Oct 2020), it seems to be back down to the $1,200 as previously.
Not likely to happen in May 2020 because Republican Senate is focused on Judicial selections. Not on the stimulus. Seems they need to rethink their priorities.
