How to Claim Your Economic Impact Payment (EIP) Step by Step Guide to Your $1200.

Who Qualifies for the Economic Impact Payment?

U.S. citizens, permanent residents and qualifying resident aliens who:

  • Have a valid Social Security number,
  • Could not be claimed as a dependent of another taxpayer, and
  • Had adjusted gross income under certain limits.

How much does the EIP pay?

Eligible individuals who file a joint tax return will receive up to $2,400 and all other eligible individuals will receive up to $1,200. Those with qualifying children will receive up to an additional $500 per qualifying child.

Eligible individuals don’t need a minimum income for the Payment.

However, for higher income individuals, the Payment amount is reduced by 5% of the amount that their adjusted gross income exceeds:

  • $150,000 for taxpayers filing a joint return
  • $112,500 for taxpayers filing as head of household
  • $75,000 for all others

The $1,200 Payment for eligible individuals with no qualifying children ($2,400 for married couples filing a joint return) will be reduced to $0 once adjusted gross income reaches the following thresholds:

  • $198,000 for taxpayers filing a joint return
  • $136,500 for taxpayers filing as head of household
  • $99,000 for all others
    Each of these adjusted gross income threshold amounts increases by $10,000 for each additional qualifying child.
    For example, because families with one qualifying child receive an additional $500 Payment, their $1,700 Payment ($2,900 for married couples filing a joint return) will be reduced to $0 once adjusted gross income reaches the following thresholds:
  • $208,000 for taxpayers filing a joint return
  • $146,500 for taxpayers filing as head of household
  • $109,000 for all others
