Economic Impact Payments; Get My Payment
Working with the Treasury Department, the Internal Revenue Service
has unveiled the new Get My Payment with features to let taxpayers
check on their Economic Impact Payment date and update direct deposit
information. Get My Payment will show the projected date when a
deposit has been scheduled, similar to the “Where’s
My Refund tool” many taxpayers are already familiar with.
In addition to Get My Payment, Treasury and IRS have a second a
new web tool allowing quick registration for Economic Impact Payments
for those who don’t normally file a tax return.
No action needed by most taxpayers. Eligible taxpayers who filed
tax returns for 2019 or 2018 will receive the payments automatically.
Automatic payments will also go in the near future to those receiving
Social Security retirement, or disability (SSDI), or survivor benefits
and Railroad Retirement benefits.
