The IRS just announced a new website where you can get your stimulus relief check if you’re not required to file taxes. Called “Get My Payment” the launch is in conjunction with the US Treasury and the IRS. In addition to setting up registration, the Treasury claims people can check the status of their stimulus payment.

New Site for Tax Filers
The Treasury Department will be setting up a new site (coming mid-April) where people who have filed tax returns can use the Get My Payment application to let the IRS know your bank account information if they do not already have it and you haven’t received your payment. I’ll pen a new article once that site goes LIVE.
For tax non-filers, this is great news. Hopefully this will make things go smoother and quicker for users. As a matter of fact, during the 2008 recession, the government’s stimulus checks took as long as two months to reach people.
