  • Payments:
    • Misconception: These will be taxable benefits. FALSE. Qualifying Americans will receive a stimulus payment, with no strings attached. It is anticipated to be looked at as a ‘pre-funded tax credit on your 2021 tax return.’ There is no repayment required.
  • Loan Deferral:
    • Mortgages, federally-backed student loans, and others essentially have a new forbearance option available. “Hitting pause on a mortgage and student loan debt is a massive help to most people around the country.” Call your lender to get specifics for your account(s).
    • Student Loans: Know who owns your debt to know if any of this applies to you. Checking with who you pay your monthly payment to is a great place to start. See if you’re eligible for relief through the CARES Act.
