The House Ways and Means Committee released Thursday a rundown of how the individual tax rebates under the coronavirus relief bill will work — and which taxpayers will receive them.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security, or CARES Act — which passed the Senate late Wednesday — ensures that only taxpayers who are actually eligible for cash assistance receives it.
The process for receiving these funds is “simplified for seniors and individuals with disabilities who did not file taxes to ensure they get these dollars quickly,” the tax-writing committee explains.
In order to receive the direct federal assistance, the individual must have a valid Social Security number.
Individuals who are in the country illegally cannot, Ways and Means states.
