The majority of the payments will take the form of tax refunds, with the aim of balancing out the high inflation that is impacting Americans’ access to everything from food to gas.
Additionally, the others serve as stimulus checks that are made to those who have experienced financial difficulty as a result of the pandemic.
However, each of these will only be made once.
