$3,200 Stimulus for Millions of Americans

The stimulus check has been the hallmark of the country since the pandemic began. It helped millions of Americans and other qualified individuals to meet their daily needs and buy their basic commodities like food amid the economic recession.

Recently, the GAO announced that those who make little to no income remain eligible to claim their stimulus checks. Even though they are not required to pay their taxes. The only thing that they need to do is to complete a simplified tax return and get their relief payments is Nov. 15 or before the mentioned deadline, according to a report published in MSN News.

Additionally, GAO also said that taxpayers who missed the two deadlines, April 15 and Oct.17, are also eligible. The agency estimated that there are around 9 to 10 million who are eligible to receive the $3,200 stimulus.
