Major advocacy win: Americans abroad win big with the Coronavirus Relief Law. Yes, you and your family can get meaningful monetary relief!
Our advocacy has generated a few wins in the last 2 years, but nothing like this!!! And at a time when it is most needed. The Corona virus has been devastating to everyone. And as a result of last-minute advocacy, Congress changed the wording, the final version that became law came up BIG for Americans abroad. Yes. American citizens & Green Card holders living outside the U.S. are entitled to $1200 each ($2400 for a married couple), plus $500 for each dependent, even if you do not owe a single dollar in US taxes.
There are some conditions to receiving the funds. I have worked closely with Brighttax.com on this, I appreciate their input and they understand the bits and bytes. See details at https://brighttax.com/cares-corona-rebate-expats/
