I have a question about the stimulus check. Why is the stimulus check based on 2019 tax returns? I earned over $100,000 in 2019 and now I am retired and earned far less than $100,000 this year. Why can’t I qualify for a stimulus check?
Do you think this is fair given that I have not been working as much in 2020? I also know people who made over $100,000 in 2019, but can’t get a stimulus because of their 2019 tax return, even though they earned less this year. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
