DALLAS ( CBSDFW.COM ) – Stimulus checks have already been distributed to 85 percent of American households, in President Biden’s estimation. But extra money is now arriving for many, money they may not have expected. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is sending out catch-up payments, also known as “plus-up” payments, to anyone whose third payment was less than they are eligible for. Nearly 700,000 of these payments, valued around $1.2 billion, went out last week. Additional disbursements will continue on a weekly basis for the foreseeable future. Plus-up payments do not apply to the first two rounds of stimulus. The IRS used the latest tax return information on file to calculate the amount of the third stimulus check. For people who had not yet completed their 2020 taxes, that was still their 2019 tax return. Many people had a much lower income in 2020, given the pandemic shutdowns and record unemployment. Others welcomed a new member to the family. READ MORE: Child Tax … [Read more...] about Stimulus Check Update: Can You Expect A Plus-Up Payment?

The office vacancy rate in Manhattan has hit its highest level since 1994 and will likely hit “unprecedented levels” in the near future, a report from a global real estate services firm has found. CNN reported that the global real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield found that the office vacancy rate in Manhattan reached 16.3 percent in the first quarter of 2021, up from 11.3 percent a year ago. The company said it expects the rate to continue to rise to "unprecedented levels in the coming months" and drive down asking rents "substantially." ADVERTISEMENT CNN noted that Manhattan's overall asking price for rent has decreased for the past two consecutive quarters.
