Latest updates on Stimulus Checks/Economic Impact Payments
The government has been issuing economic stimulus payments to those who are eligible. You may receive your payment via check, direct deposit, or prepaid debit card. The IRS reminds taxpayers that the payments are automatic, and they should not contact their financial institutions or the IRS with payment timing questions.
Using the IRS status tool, you can find the following information:
- Your payment status
- Your payment type
- If your information is up to date with the IRS

If you are eligible for a payment, your payment will be deposited directly into the same account used when you filed your 2019 tax return and/or the account number used in the previous stimulus payment program. The IRS reminds taxpayers that the payments are automatic, and they should not contact their financial institutions or the IRS with payment timing questions. The IRS has a website where you can check your payment status here.

Protecting yourself from fraud
DO NOT give out sensitive information over the phone. At no point has the IRS said it will be calling people to collect information.
DO NOT pay anyone in connection with this money. The IRS will not ask you to pay to expedite the process or to pay a small upfront fee. A popular scam is to ask for a small fee upfront to get the deposit early or other payment techniques.
If someone calls you or asks something questionable related to the stimulus payments, contact the IRS using the information on www.irs.gov for clarification.
