IRS Website Launched Allows Americans To Track Their Coronavirus Stimulus Check

The IRS has recently launched a website that allows Americans to track the status of their stimulus checks.

The IRS “Get My Payment” website informs users as to when they can expect their $1,200 coronavirus stimulus check. In addition, the site also details whether the agency needs more information before they send the check.

The website will provide details if their check has been delivered, and to which bank account it was deposited to.

In order to use the website, users may need their 2019 tax return, if filed, and their 2018 tax return. Users will need to provide their Social Security Number, date of birth, address and ZIP code to access the information on the website.

The federal government has already started sending stimulus funds earlier this week to citizens who have filed direct deposit information with the government. Those who do not have bank information on file with the government will need to wait a few months before a paper check arrives in the mail.

The following details eligibility for citizens to receive stimulus cash from the federal government.

$2,400 – Couples earning less than $150,000 a year (couples earning $150,000 – $198,000 will receive a prorated check).
