    • Stimulus checks are coming — here’s how to make sure you get yours quickly

      Stimulus checks are coming — here's how to make sure you get yours quickly

      Spoiler alert: If you haven't filed your taxes since 2017, now is a good time to get that done.

      Americans should start getting relief checks within three weeks, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday, March 26, 2020.

      Consumers eager to receive their stimulus checks from the government's historic coronavirus aid package need to make sure they are up to date on their taxes.

      Once the stimulus measure is passed by the House and signed into law, distributions would come via the IRS, which would use 2019 taxpayer forms to determine how much a person's check should be and where it should be sent. If 2019 taxes have yet to be filed, the IRS would use information from taxpayers' 2018 forms.

      So if you haven't filed taxes yet for one of those years, now is a good time.

      This step is especially important for low-income Americans who don't typically file taxes. In that case, they would still need to file a form. People receiving nontaxable income, would still get checks. People receiving Social Security benefits will also get the payment.

      It's not necessary to download special software or use a tax preparer. The IRS has two paths for free filing options, one for those making under $69,000 and another for those making above $69,000. Both can be found on IRS.gov.

      Individuals making up to $75,000 a year would receive checks for $1,200, with an additional $500 per child. The payments would progressively decrease for individuals making more than $75,000, with an income cap of $99,000.

      Americans should start getting checks within three weeks, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday. By comparison, the IRS took three months to distribute checks in 2009 to battle the Great Recessio

      Some experts say that because of budget cuts and "obsolete technology," the IRS would need months, not weeks, to send out payments.

      "I don't think any of the policymakers have given any thought to the practical implications of actually doing this. The IRS doesn't have the resources to do it," Howard Gleckman, a senior analyst at the Urban Institute's Tax Policy Center, told Reuters.

      People who were planning on receiving paper checks and have moved since they filed their last returns should submit a change of address form, which normally takes four to six weeks to process.

      Types of Ads

      Cost Per Click (CPC) CPC is when an advertiser pays money based on clicks.  So if a certain keyword has a CPC of $3 and someone clicks on that ad, it will charge that advertiser $3. These text ads pop up in the lower part of the screen during the video and can also show up as a square banner on the right side of your channel. Cost Per View (CPV) CPV is when an advertiser pays money based on views.  A view for the advertiser means someone watches an Ad for at least 30 seconds or half of the ad; whichever comes first.  That person could click that ad 50 times but it still wouldn’t charge the advertiser more because they’re not paying for the click, they’re paying for the view. 4/25 World Wide Medias

    • White House, Senate reach deal on massive $2 trillion coronavirus spending bill

      Global Equities Choppy After U.S. Lawmakers Reach Deal on $2 Trillion Coronavirus Package


      U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin walks to a meeting during negotiations on a relief package in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday.

      European stocks and Dow Jones Industrial Average futures swung between gains and losses on Wednesday, after the U.S. Senate and White House negotiators reached agreement on a massive coronavirus stimulus bill following marathon talks.
      Optimism ahead of that deal led to the best one-day gain for the Dow industrials since 1933. Announced shortly after midnight, the $2 trillion package will include direct deposits for all Americans and $367 billion in loans for small businesses.
      The Stoxx Europe 600 index whittled a 4.3% gain down to 1.1% and the German DAX turned a 4% gain into a 0.8% loss. Tuesday0100’s 8.4% surge for the Stoxx 600 marked the biggest one-day percentage gain since November 2008. The markets may have gotten ahead of themselves with Tuesday’s gains, said Craig Erlam, senior market analyst, U.K. & EMEA at OANDA
      “Obviously, a $2 trillion stimulus plan is huge. I feel like all of these stimulus measures, monetary and fiscal could turbo charge a recovery when it happens, but I think any sustainable recovery in markets will be hard pushed when we’re still seeing increasing lockdowns, increasing numbers of cases and deaths at a faster rate,” he said in a telephone interview.
      In the U.S., where newly detected cases have soared past Iran, Germany, and Spain, infections totaled 55,225 cases and 802 deaths, according to the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering’s Centers for Systems Science and Engineering in a Wednesday update. New York state remains the worst hit with 25,665 cases as of Tuesday afternoon. Spain reported more than 700 deaths on Wednesday, a new record. U.S. stock futures swung between gains and losses.   Dow Jones Industrial Average futures reversed a rise of 723 points to gain 23 points to 20,630, while S&P 500 and Nasdaq-100 futures were down nearly 1% each. The Dow soared 2,112.98 points or 11.4%, to close at 20,704.91 on Tuesday, as lawmakers inched toward that rescue package. Oil prices also turned lower, with West Texas Intermediate crude down around 2%. Asian markets rose sharply, with the Nikkei 225 index surging 8%.
      The Senate reconvenes at noon and is expected to easily pass the legislation, which will then go to the House of Representatives. President Donald Trump said in an interview on Tuesday that he’d like to see the country back up and running by Easter, on April 12, but some experts have pushed back against an early easing in restrictions. Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Tuesday that an alarming and rapid spread of the virus in New York City would crush intensive-care units in two weeks.  Written by Alex Moriarity Alexander.Moriarity@gmail.com Worldwidemedias.com
