Nothing better than the US Government and taxpayers subsidizing multi-billion dollar accounting firms. Saying this as someone who will also qualify. Who said Christmas bonuses don’t exist!

Got 900/2400 first round but since I’ve filed 2019 I will get a whopping 0/1200. Income didn’t change but since it’s a lower amount the phase out limit is lower. Phasing out because wife makes a lot not because PA pays me well😂

I was at GT for most of 2019. I’m getting both checks too even though I wouldn’t qualify now. Gotta love the purple penny-pincher. 🙌🏽

What is the income criteria to get the stimulus money?

I don’t qualify due to my 2019 filing yet I spent a good chunk of 2020 unemployed. Coo coo.

Well at least you can get it when you file 2020

For real. $70s as a former senior accountant and qualifying for this bonus is nice. Too bad the profession isn’t paying more at this level so we leave to become managers in industry.

Is it based on AGI?

I normally wouldn’t but since it’s AGI and I put a big % into 401k, I get the stimulus check

I’m fortunate I’m not in a super high cost of living area. If I was in NYC, LA, or San Francisco, I would almost certainly be getting a reduced stimulus check

I was very surprised that I even got a stimulus check this year. I live and work abroad. But it’s ok, I’m still very much stimulating the US.

You’re welcome from the rest of us who don’t get this 🤓
