JERSEY CITY, N.J., December 29, 2020 – While the emergency COVID-19 economic relief bill, also known as the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, was signed into law on the evening of December 27, 2020, there are still many unanswered questions that taxpayers have and Jackson Hewitt Tax Service® is reminding Americans that they are a valuable resource to cut through the clutter to understand what they need to know.
Jackson Hewitt® Offers Taxpayers Stimulus Payment Calculator, Online Resources
“We know that a second stimulus check, or Economic Impact Payment (EIP), is needed across the country for hardworking Americans and small businesses – and they couldn’t be coming at a better time,” said Mark Steber, Chief Tax Information Officer at Jackson Hewitt. “Taxpayers can find resources they need with our Tax Pros nationwide and on our website to understand what they need to know about these tax laws and benefits.”
Eligible Americans who expect to receive a stimulus relief payment can visit Jackson Hewitt’s website to calculate an estimate as to what they may receive, with Jackson Hewitt’s stimulus payment calculator at https://www.jacksonhewitt.com/tax-tools/covid-19-stimulus-calculator/.
In addition to the stimulus calculator, also available as an online resource for taxpayers:
- A library of YouTube videos, from Jackson Hewitt’s “Tax File Minute: Answers from a Tax Insider” series with Mark Steber
- An up-to-date frequently asked questions guide that answers questions like “What are the income limits for the second round of stimulus?” “Will older children who I claim as dependents receive a stimulus payment?,” and “Will people who do not have a Social Security number but instead have an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) instead receive a stimulus payment?”
- An understanding of what the new relief package includes for those receiving unemployment compensation
- A document checklist for what taxpayers need to have when they file their 2020 income taxes
“With these new tax laws and millions of Americans who faced challenging year-long employment changes, there has never been a better time to meet with a Tax Pro. Tax Pros can help taxpayers understand and navigate their unique situation on how their taxes will be impacted this year,” Steber said.
