New! “Get My Payment” Live from the IRS for Stimulus Money

Written by Charlie

The new “Get My Payment” page is live from the IRS! This will help you make sure you get the payment where you want it and what info the IRS needs.

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 But, for those that may have outdated banking information with the IRS or none at all, this new Get My Payment page is key to getting your money!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).

  • I tried it today and it says my info was not correct (even thought it was). It booted me out of the system for 24 hours after 3 attempts. I don’t think it is working correctly as I entered my 2019 and 2018 info on the 3rd attempt. I will try again tomorow

  • I checked again on yesterday and it is telling me that it is scheduled to be deposited but back to the same account. So how are they messing it up again. Back to the same account that’s not mines. Why don’t they just put it on the card instead of sending it back to the IRS??

  • When getting stimulus checks and the people have to pay child support ready pay from working why do they hav to take all the stimulus money for for more payment s if the stimulus is to help people dat need it .. Hopefully the government understands dat problems..

  • What if I didn’t file 2018 but I did mail in 2019 taxes, I still haven’t updated in irs website, how can I get the stimulous

    • Has your 2019 return been processed yet? If not, you will just need to wait for that to process since you are not supposed to use the Non-Filer’s form if you had filed a 2019 return.
