How much money could I get with a second stimulus check?
The HEROES Act offers a larger stimulus payment than the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act. Under the new legislation each member of a household would receive $1,200, including children. The income thresholds would remain the same, meaning that single taxpayers earning less than $75,000 and married taxpayers earning a total of $150,000 would receive the full payments. A family of four whose parents earn less than $150,000 would receive $4,800.Congress decides whether there will be a second stimulus check. Congress, not the president, authorizes federal spending. Republicans will have the biggest impact on the contents of the next stimulus package.
