You only have HOURS left to claim additional stimulus payments valued at $ 1,400


This is the last chance for Americans to step up and claim a $ 1,400 stimulus check – or you will miss it.

These are the “plus-up” payments, which are part of the American Rescue Act, enacted by President Joe Biden in March.

“Plus” payouts are available to those who earned less than they earned compared to 2019.

For example, if something has changed on your 2020 tax return – like you’ve made less money or added a dependent – you might be eligible for the increased payments.

Plus, to qualify for the full $ 1,400 stimulus check, your income must not exceed $ 75,000, or $ 150,000 for couples.

If you think you qualify, you must file your 2020 tax return today because the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has set a deadline of December 31.

Beyond this date, the IRS will not issue “over-up” payments.

Once the IRS receives your tax return, it will assess it and determine if you are eligible for payment.

Today is also the deadline for New Yorkers to receive a $ 100 debit card to get their reminder.

Those who received their booster shots on or after December 21 at an eligible vaccination site are eligible for payment.

You must get your third dose of vaccine through a New York City-operated vaccination site or city-partner SOMOS site to get the $ 100 reward.

In addition, a dozen states and cities sent stimulus checks and other payments ahead of the New Year.

California, for example, continues to send stimulus payments under its Golden State Stimulus II program.

It is estimated that a total of nine million Californians will receive checks by the end of the year.

Currently, the state sends payments to zip codes 720-927 and 928-999.
