FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - People here in Fort Wayne are wondering what the outcome will be for the second round of stimulus checks.
This round of checks which are part of the coronavirus relief package will be $600.
Lawmakers are working on a deal that would include $600 stimulus checks. Details of when it will pass are still in the air.
However, some people in Fort Wayne said the wait shouldn't have been this long.
"I understand they are negotiating and they have to come to an agreement. I think they could've done it a lot earlier, but if it is coming through that is a good thing," Rachel Phillips from Fort Wayne said.
Earlier this year congress dished out $1,200 to people, couples received $2,400 and an extra $500 was provided for every child.
While Donna Jackson said receiving a second stimulus check is good, she doesn't know how much help it would be for people with families.
"If we get taxed on it as additional income at the end of the year, what good is it really doing anyone? It might pay a bill," Jackson said.
John Hare said the best bet is to bet on yourself at this point.
"I have my own feelings on this. I know this is not nearly enough. We should rely on our own communities and build resilience here through our unions, through publicly sourced foods and all of these resources because working people have no savior but working people," John Hare from California said.
Those who have their bank information on file with the IRS will most likely get their money first.
If your banking information isn't on file with the IRS, you'll receive paper checks or prepaid debit cards in the mail.
