Earlier this week, I wrote about the stimulus package money going out and how to find out how much you were getting and when. Just now, the IRS “Get My Payment” page went live to help you figure out what the IRS still needs from you.
New IRS “Get My Payment” Page Live
Many direct deposits of the stimulus money have already gone out (I received mine this morning, as did many other Americans). But, for those that may have outdated banking information with the IRS or none at all, this new Get My Payment page is key to getting your money!
Link: Get My Payment Page
The good thing about this page is that, if you do not currently have direct deposit info with the IRS, you can set it up to get your money from the stimulus package quicker! Checks will start going out as of April 24 but it could take until September for all the checks to go out. So, here is what you need to know!
The Get My Payment page will give you information about:
- Your payment status
- Your payment type
- Whether the IRS needs more information from you, including bank account information
The page says:
You May Need:
- Your 2019 return, if filed, and
- Your 2018 return
Finally, it also says:
Didn’t File a Return in 2018 or 2019?
If you have a filing requirement and have not filed a tax return for 2018 or 2019, you must file a 2019 tax return to receive the payment.
If you are not required to file a 2018 or 2019 tax return, visit Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here.
How Much Will You Get from the Stimulus Package?
Here is a quick and easy calculator to show you exactly what you can expect from the stimulus package (remember that the children have to be under 17 to get the credit for them).
