The IRS announced that it would launch a website on April 17 that would allow people to check the status of their payment, including the date it's scheduled to arrive, and the bank account or address where it's headed.
It's called the Get My Payment portal (good name, guys) and will also allow people to provide bank account information if the IRS doesn't already have it.
The IRS also announced the launch of a new website that will allow people who don't have to pay taxes (such as people with lower incomes, veteran beneficiaries, and others) to send the IRS info about where to mail or deposit their stimulus checks. This news comes as a relief to people who have been wondering whether the promise of a stimulus check applies to them.
The relief checks, officially called Economic Impact Payments, are scheduled to begin going out next week. You can read more about eligibility here.
If you want to check the status of your stimulus check you can visit the website : https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment.
This service went live today (4/15/20) and It allows consumers to check their payment status, confirm whether they prefer direct deposit or a paper check and enter their bank account information for direct deposit if the IRS doesn't have it yet.
