HOUSTON — The Internal Revenue Service announced over Easter weekend the first Economic Impact Payments, also known as coronavirus stimulus checks, were already being deposited into some taxpayers’ bank accounts.

As of Wednesday, April 15, about 80 million Americans will have received payments, the government says. Now the IRS has an online tool where you can track those payments as well as update your bank account info online.

Who is getting the money first

The people getting theirs first are the ones who filed tax returns in 2018 or 2019 and received funds through direct deposit. People who didn’t file taxes, are very low income or are older and don’t need to file will have to wait for their money. Any paper checks should go out starting early May.

Stimulus payment status tracker is now online

The new IRS web portal will let users check the status of their stimulus payments. The IRS launched this tool Wednesday, April 15.

What if the IRS doesn’t have my current bank info for direct deposit?

The IRS created a web portal where users can check the status of their stimulus payments. It will launch this week. The site will also have a feature to enter your bank account information if the IRS doesn’t already have it from a 2018 or 2019 refund. The IRS launched this tool Wednesday, April 15.

What if I don’t file taxes every year?

The IRS launched this webpage to allow non-tax filers to provide the federal government with payment information. Look for the “Non-filers: Enter payment info here” button.

“If you don’t file taxes, use the “Non-Filers: Enter Your Payment Info Here” application to provide simple information so you can get your payment. You should use this application if: You did not file a 2018 or 2019 federal income tax return because your gross income was under $12,200 ($24,400 for married couples). This includes people who had no income. Or You weren’t required to file a 2018 or 2019 federal income tax return for other reasons”

How much will you get?

In short, people who make $75,000 or less will receive the full $1,200 check. That amount will phase out, capping at people making $99,000. Households will receive an additional $500 for children under 16 years old.
