Dear Faith and Community Based Organizations,
If you have questions about taxes or stimulus checks:
The distribution of federal stimulus checks has begun and will occur automatically with no action required for most people. Adults with annual incomes up to $75,000 will receive $1,200, plus another $500 per child. Some Americans earning more than $75,000 would also receive money if they meet certain qualifications.
Social Security beneficiaries who are not typically required to file tax returns will not need to file to receive a payment. Instead, payments will be automatically deposited into their bank accounts. If you do not file a federal tax return,
