Consumer Economic Impact Payments – Round THREE

On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill into law. A provision of the law includes a third round of Economic Impact Payments (EIPs) to be sent to eligible Americans. Below is helpful information regarding EIPs.
