Who is eligible for a recovery rebate?

  • The CARE Act provides a $1,200 refundable tax credit for individuals ($2,400 for taxpayers filing jointly)
  • Additionally, there are rebates of $500 for each child.
  • The rebate phases out between $75,000 and $99,000 of AGI ($150,000 - $198,000 married filing jointly).
  • A typical family of four is eligible for a $3,400 recovery rebate.
  • The rebates will not be counted as taxable income for recipients, as the rebate is a credit against tax liability and is refundable for taxpayers with no tax liability to offset.
