Income that counts is any wages made with self employment, tips, interest, dividends, income from rent, retirement income and gains from selling property.

Social Security as income is not counted, so if that’s all a person gets then they do not qualify for a check.

To qualify people need to have filed their income taxes for 2020 by Oct. 15.
