American households will receive their second round of stimulus checks very soon as Mnuchin said the government would start sending those out on Wednesday. Therefore, eligible Americans would receive those within the next two weeks, as per Fox Business.
President Donald Trump signed the bipartisan bill almost a week after Congress approved it. The bill authorizes the second stimulus check for up to $600 per individual. However, Trump says the amount was a "disgrace," and pushes for a second stimulus check for $2,000 instead.
Congress is running out of options if they pass a second stimulus check amounting to $2,000, despite the vote on Monday. The standalone amendments are harder to pass, especially with days left in the current Congress term.
The House of Representatives will vote Monday to raise the $600 per-person stimulus check ceiling, but it's uncertain if the increase would succeed in the Senate. Now that Trump at the very last minute has signed the economic relief bill, here are everything you should know today, according to CNET via MSN:
The new $900 billion stimulus bill that Trump approved Sunday includes the second stimulus check, which is clearly reduced in an amount: half of the first check you have received. In the latest bill signed by Trump, the second stimulus checks are $600 per qualifying adult and $1,200 for each married couple that filed jointly.
The figure would be based on your tax status and on the sliding scale-like, which gives you the full amount to a specific income limit. Then, a partial payment up to the amount set beyond that. You would not be eligible for any amount after receiving a certain amount. But the $600 upper cut-off limit is half the first check, which lowers the income ceiling to get a partial check and obtain any check.

The $900 billion economic relief bill changes the amount of money you would get for child dependents; a flat rate of $600. This payment is different from the variable rate set for an eligible adult. The first direct payment is an increase from $500 per child dependent 16 years or younger. The latest bill signed has no cap on the number of children 17 and under that will contribute to the household's total.
.The IRS was tasked to make online registration and payment tracking tool with the first check. Besides, the federal agency is responsible for the payment schedule for more than 160 million Americans. It took 19 days before the IRS delivered the first wave of payments.
But this time, the tracking tool has been made, and the system is in place. Therefore, the first stimulus deliveries could take a week after the bill was approved. On December 21, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said those with banking information on file with the IRS would get their checks faster.
According to CNBC, Mnuchin said that the good news is, direct payments are a fast way of getting money. He added, "Let me emphasize: People are going to see this money at the beginning of next week." If Trump does not sign the bill, the promise would not be real.
