I'm not certain this is what was signed in the end, but they were saying only those who filed taxes, and a few other categories such as students.
So if you didn't work in 2019 should you now file a tax return?

What yearís income should I be looking at?
2019. If you havenít prepared a tax return yet, you can use your 2018 return. If you havenít filed that yet, you can use a 2019 Social Security statement showing your income.

If you had no income you still get a check?

The website is asking for AGI

AGI is 0.00 if I file. What I am asking is my daughter does not work. Should I have her file for 2019 anyway with no income?

Seems like that is a good idea.
She has no 1099s? I'm disappointed in you.

Why isn't there a hardship test? Is this meant to help people who are currently in crisis, or is it just to buy votes from middle America? People who did well last year could be in bad shape now, while others who may have earned less than them in the past could still be making the same amount now and doing fine.

The left would call me a gun nut owning parent. One thing I will never run out of is ammo.  ;)

They tried to make it simple but I agree with you.

They want to do it as quickly as possible, and with any other criteria it would take more time to distribute.

This is the answer. They just want to get the money out there already.

In reality this is very much NOT the answer. The majority of the money in the package is going to State governments, Big business, and Small business (not mom&pop shops). The checks going out to individuals is just to generate static around where the $2,000,000,000,000 is really going, and the income test is to make you think that it's not going to rich people. In reality, that's exactly where the majority of the money is going, and at the expense of people who really need it but won't qualify.
