On the other hand, Tier 2 provides $250 to each taxpayer, with an additional $250 if they have at least one dependent, and it applies to 2.1 million taxpayers who make between $75,001 and $125,000 as single filers or $150,001 to $250,000 jointly with a dependent, a couple in this salary range would receive $750.
Tier three provides $200 to each taxpayer, with an additional $200 if they have at least one dependent, and it applies to 1.1 million taxpayers who make between $125,001 and $250,000 as single filers or $250,001 to $500,000 jointly with a dependent a couple in this salary range would receive $600.
