Millions of Americans could soon get an extra stimulus check in the mail. The IRS is sending out “plus-up” payments to those who didn't receive the full stimulus payment amount they are eligible for. When the latest stimulus check went out, the amount was determined by the most recent tax return information the IRS had on file. However, for many that was still their 2019 tax return. Due to the pandemic, many people had a lower income in 2020, which calls for a bigger stimulus check. The “plus-up” checks will contain the difference between what people initially received and what they are entitled to.
