About this Deal
If another economic relief bill passes, your adjusted gross income would determine how much money you'd get in a second stimulus check. Here's how to find and calculate your AGI based on your taxes.
The House of Representatives and Senate are now both back in session, continuing negotiations over another coronavirus stimulus package and the second stimulus check that could come with it. Both Democratic and Republican leaders have said they want to provide up to $1,200 per eligible American adult, but it remains to be seen if the two sides will be able to reach a compromise before the 2020 election, or if an executive action could trigger movement on another direct payment.
If a second round of stimulus checks is approved, exactly how much you'd receive would likely depend on your adjusted gross income, or AGI, from your 2019 federal tax filing. (Here's our stimulus check calculator for an estimate. You can also find out who counts as a dependent on your taxes and what that means for a stimulus payment, and how old a dependent has to be to get a stimulus check of their own.)
It's likely that a second payment would follow the basics set in the first stimulus check authorized in March's CARES Act. Read on to learn exactly what an AGI is, how to find yours and how to use it to measure how much money you could receive, if a second stimulus check goes through.
