How can our clients track the status of their stimulus check from the IRS?
If a client is eligible for a stimulus payment, they can use the IRS web portal “Get My Payment” to track their money. Here’s the process:
- 1. Head to the IRS “Get My Payment” pageand tap the blue “Get My Payment”button to check the status of your economic impact payment. (You may see a notice that due to high demand you will need to wait.)
- On the next page regarding authorized use tap“OK.”
- On the Get My Payment page, enter your social security number (SSN) or individual tax ID (ITIN); your date of birth; your street address and ZIP or postal code. Tap“Continue.”
On the next page, the portal will show your payment status, whether it’s been scheduled or if the service can’t determine your status yet. If you have not set up direct deposit with the IRS, the service may walk you through those steps to get your check sent straight to your bank account. Here’s how to set up direct deposit.
