IRS Sends Second Round of Stimulus Payments.  On December 27, 2020, the fourth COVID-19 relief package was signed into law. The $900 billion relief package, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, was combined with a larger omnibus bill that included annual government funding for Fiscal Year 2021.

This relief package included a second round of Economic Impact Payments (EIPs). The IRS began sending EIPs by direct deposits on December 29, and paper checks began to be mailed on December 30. Pre-paid debit cards (EIP Cards) have been mailed out in January. The IRS has planned to complete sending all payments by Friday, January 15, 2021. In this round, the payments are $600 for individuals or $1,200 for married couples, plus another $600 for each child under the age of 17, with the amounts phased out at higher income levels.  For more information click here.
