The bill will grant stimulus checks to American workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. A lot of focus for Ohioans is on the part of the bill that will give each individual a base check of $1,200, granted they make less than $75,000 a year in gross income. If you’re part of a couple that files taxes together, you may be eligible to receive $2,400. Parents will likely see an additional $500 per child under 17. 

What about those making over $75,000 gross a year? 

Individuals making more than $75k won’t be eligible to receive the stimulus check. The exception to this is if you’re married and filing together. 

Common questions and answers about the stimulus checks

When will Ohioans get stimulus checks?

The IRS is making a new form available on their site, similar to the one they created in 2008 during the last recession.
