COVID-19 stimulus calculator: How much will your next payment be?

PITTSBURGH — Want to know how much you will be getting if the third stimulus checks go out? There are several online calculators set up to tell you.

On Saturday, the U.S. Senate passed the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill. Now, it’s headed to the House for a scheduled vote Wednesday. It appears it should pass along party lines.

If it does, once President Joe Biden signs it, the turnaround for Americans to see a third stimulus check could be quick. Back in December, once President Donald Trump put his signature down, it was just three days until bank accounts began to see deposits.

But how much would you get?

As usual, Americans who have their bank info on file with the IRS would be among the first to see the cash -- through direct deposits. Others will get paper checks or prepaid debit cards in the mail.

Use the calculator here from the Washington Post to see how large a check you’ll receive. If you’ve already filed your 2020 taxes, the check will most likely be based on that income. If you haven’t, it will be based on your 2019 taxes.
