Waiting by the postboax? The IRS has launched a new tool on its website to track your Economic Impact Payment.
The page is dedicated to information about the stimulus payments including how to determine if your are eligible, what to do if you did not file a tax return, and how to change your mailing address or bank information.
Just click on the Get My Payment button and…. wait. Yes, the site is very busy as you can imagine.
And if you have not filed your 2019 tax return you should know that currently the IRS is not processing paper returns, only electronic. If you need to file, electronic is the best way to go right now. Otherwise, you will have to wait for the IRS offices to reopen for processing paper statements.
And if you are a non-filer, meaning you don’t have a requirement normally to file, then you can enter your information on the site and get your stimulus payment. You will have to go through several steps and enter your name, date of birth. social security number and set up an account on the IRS FreeFile tool.
