Do you have questions regarding the IRS Stimulus Check? I have had many many many questions about the checks, eligibility, etc. Until today, I didn’t know where to turn for answers to my specific questions. I had been checking IRS website, but wasn’t seeing much detail pertaining to COVID-19 and the stimulus checks. However, IRS now has a dedicated website page. (As of 3/31/20)
The IRS direct link is IRS.gov/coronavirus on the Coronavirus Tax Relief page.
Types of Questions and Responses
Once you get to that page, you will see a link for the Economic Impact Payment: What you need to know. From that page, you will be presented with responses to questions like, the following:
- Who is eligible for the economic impact payment?
- How will the IRS know where to send my payment?
- The IRS does not have my direct deposit information. What can I do?
- I am not typically required to file a tax return. Can I still receive my payment?
- How can I file the tax return needed to receive my economic impact payment?
- I have not filed my tax return for 2018 or 2019. Can I still receive an economic impact payment?
- I need to file a tax return. How long are the economic impact payments available?
- Where can I get more information?
Remember, I am just sharing this information informally as a regular person who had questions and couldn’t find the answers. So, I am using my various platforms to share the website link and the types of questions the IRS updated on the IRS web page as of 3/31/20. I am in no way representing IRS or attempting to be an expert. Just want to make that clear. This post is for information sharing only. Recently, I shared some inspirational posts to help re-ignite your spark and quotes that help me through tough times. BE ENCOURAGED
I sure hope you find this information sharing handy. Since it appears the IRS will be updating the web page with details as they receive them, I would encourage you to continue checking irs.gov/coronavirus for those ongoing updates. You are not alone. We will get through THIS together. Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Home.
