    Yes. Who qualifies, as well as paying out the benefits longer, AND increasing the amount they are willing to pay.

    100% of regular pay? My wife got her green unemployment letter and no where near 100%.

    Federal bill hasn't passed yet. It's part of the "phase 3" bill.

    It hasn’t passed yet so not surprising

    Didn't realize the discussion was regarding the federal package and not the state unemployment changes.

    Thanks for the info.

    I have an adult son at home that filed taxes for the first time in 2019. How will that breakdown regarding payments?

    He gets $1200 assuming there's no adjustment for low/no wage earners and you didn't claim him as a dependent.

    This is going to be taxed as income doing our 2020 taxes isn't it? Or even worse, is it a pre refund like last time?

    Damn, our youngest son lives close to downtown Dallas, in one the trendy neighborhoods, and he is only paying $1800 a month.

    At least state wise for sure. You get to deduct federal taxes for state taxes. So everytime the fed cuts their taxes, the state gets to pop us another 8%.

    Of course it is. Did anyone honestly think this would just be "free" money?

    The bill agreed to by the Senate allows for 4 months of unemployment at the current salary.

    However, 3 Republican Senators are taking issue with it,

    If your wife already applied she got benefits under the normal way since this hasn't been passed into law yet.
