The IRS and US Treasury Department have now gone live with a site that allows you to check the status of your stimulus check directly online.
Check The Status of Your Stimulus Payment
The Treasury Department’s Stimulus payment status tracker is now online!
The new IRS web portal allows users to check the status of their stimulus payments quite easily. Your first step is clicking over to this page to view the stimulus check tracker info and then looking for the “Get My Payment” button.
What if the IRS doesn’t have my current bank info for direct deposit?
The site also features the ability to enter the proper bank account information if the IRS doesn’t already have it on file from a 2018 or 2019 refund.
You can also update your bank account or mailing address
According to the IRS:
- If they don’t have your direct deposit information from 2018 or 2019 return – and haven’t yet sent your stimulus payment – use the Get My Payment application to let them know where to send your direct deposit.
- 2019 Filers: Your payment will be sent using the information you provided with your 2019 tax return. You will not be able to change it.
- 2018 Filers: If you need to change your account information or mailing address, file your 2019 taxes electronically as soon as possible. That is the only way to let the IRS know your new information.
Note: According to the IRS, they are not currently able to process individual paper tax returns due to the COVID-19 outbreak. So filing electronically is your only choice during the immediate crisis.
The Coronavirus has created disruptions in everyone’s lives. The US government has provided some relief for many through the economic stimulus payments authorized by the CARES Act.
