Economic Impact Payment

Help clients get the maximum amount

With the House now drafting the $1.9 trillion stimulus bill, the third Economic Impact Payment may be issued in a matter of weeks. Waiting to file a return may actually reduce the stimulus payment amount for many taxpayers.

File early to help clients with reduced income in 2020

With stimulus payments expected to be based upon the most recent tax information available (2019 or 2020) clients with reduced income in 2020 should file early so that their payments are based on the lower income amount.

Waiting could be costly

As the Wall Street Journal notes, waiting to file could mean clients with reduced income may receive smaller Economic Impact Payments based on their 2019 income.

"The size of your next stimulus check might depend on when you file your tax return."

Help clients get their stimulus even faster

Unbanked clients that receive a check from your office can get their stimulus faster by selecting the Green Dot Prepaid Visa Card.*

When the IRS releases the third Economic Impact Payment Green Dot cardholders will receive their refund in days rather than waiting for the IRS to mail a check or a debit card.
