If you are eligible to receive a $1,200 stimulus check from the Internal Revenue Service, your check is in the mail.
The IRS has begun the process of sending out relief checks to Americans with a Social Security number who earn under $75,000 a year.

The amount decreases by $5 per every $100 earned up to $99,000 a year. Hard working taxpayers who earn over $99,000, but still have bills to pay, won't receive a dime.
Married couples who earn less than $150,000 will receive $2,400 plus an additional $500 for each child. Single mothers will also receive an additional $500 per child.
The IRS says it will use a taxpayer's 2019 return to calculate eligibility. If you haven't filed a 2019 return, the IRS will base the calculation on your 2018 return.
Taxpayers who haven't filed a tax return in 2 years can file a "simple tax return" to receive their checks and any income tax refund owed by direct deposit or U.S. snail mail.
Congress approved President Trump's $2 trillion stimulus package to help Americans impacted financially by the coronavirus.
Last week, Congress passed President Trump's $2 trillion economic relief bill, including $1,200 checks to individuals who earn less than $75,000 a year.
Families will receive an additional $500 for each child. Also, the bill extends unemployment benefits by $600 per week.
Despite the government's plan to send checks out to 57 million individuals with social security numbers, Trump critics say they don't want Trump's handouts.
Outraged anti-Trumpers took to social media to declare they will reject the relief checks bearing the president's signature.
A movement has been created online to burn Trump's federal relief checks.
Rather than cash the unwanted checks and donate the money to charity -- or simply return the checks to the government, anti-Trumpers plan to protest by uploading social media videos that show them burning their $1,200 checks under the hashtag #MyCheckMyChoice.
The relief checks are expected to begin rolling out in mid April.
Question: Some of you hate your president with a passion. Do you plan to burn or return your Trump Checks? Please be honest.

Lee Daniels, left, came to the rescue of deadbeat dad Damon Dash, right, who owes $950,000 in back child support to his baby mamas Rachel Roy and Cindy Morales.
The money is part of a debt Daniels owes Dash to the tune of $1.7 million. Dame loaned Daniels the money to invest in a movie. But Daniels never paid the cash back, prompting Dash to take to social media to embarrass the father of two.

Dame was arrested in New York City last month for failing to pay child support. Following his release from jail Dash claimed he turned himself in and paid off his large debt to his exes.
"I went to turn myself in with money! I already paid it! And I still walked in with cuffs," Dash said outside the courthouse. "No more warrants. Everything is clear."
But Daniels' offer to pay off the debt suggests Dash did not pay the money like he claimed.
