Gov. Gavin Newsom and state legislators have announced an agreement on a $9.6 billion coronavirus relief plan.

It includes $600 payments to low-income taxpayers who earn $30,000 a year or less.

Also eligible: Undocumented workers and those who file their taxes with an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN).

The payments will be sent out after those who are eligible file their 2020 taxes.
