Thursday evening, Senate Republicans released the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. This bill is intended to be a third round of federal government support in the wake of the coronavirus public health crisis and associated economic fallout, following the $8.3 billion in public health support passed two weeks ago and the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
The CARES Act builds on the two former pieces of legislation by providing more robust support to both individuals and businesses, including changes to tax policy. The bill includes:
We estimate the rebate will decrease federal revenue by about $248 billion in 2020, according to the Tax Foundation General Equilibrium Model. This credit is one-time, but policymakers may consider additional rebates if the downturn is prolonged.
We estimate that the rebates would increase taxpayer after-tax income by about 2.05 percent, ranging from 7.11 percent at the lowest quintile and falling to 1.82 percent for the 80th to 90th percentiles. The rebate is structured progressively but does not include non-filers who tend to have lower income. The rebate would also use 2018 tax returns to determine rebate eligibility, which may not accurately reflect individual incomes in 2020.
