Use “Get My Payment” by Wednesday
For Faster Delivery of Economic Impact Stimulus
A recently released IRS Newswire (Issue number IR-2020-92) states that the Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are alerting people to use the Get My Payment program by noon Wednesday, May 13, 2020 for a chance to get a quicker delivery of their Economic Impact Payment check.
So far approximately 130 million individuals have already received payments worth more than $200 billion in the program’s first four weeks. Several agencies are working together to accelerate the check distribution process and get payments to more people as soon as possible.
For those who wish to have a direct deposit of their payment into their bank account this could serve as the last opportunity to provide the direct deposit information. Later this month there will be an increase in paper checks being sent to taxpayers; to those who prefer to receive the hard copy of the check and to those who have not updated their banking information. After the noon deadline on Wednesday May 13, 2020 the IRS will begin to prepare and send the necessary files to start the process of paper check distribution.
By visiting Get My Payment on the IRS.gov website taxpayers can check on their payment status and provide any necessary direct deposit banking information that may not be in the system.
The IRS has included additional details and information in this issue of IRS Newswire on how Get My Payment Works, the portal for Non-Filers, scams to be on the lookout for and more. This information can be found here.
