How to Check the Status of Your Coronavirus Relief Payment

If you are worried about when your coronavirus help arrives or where to look for money, you can now get answers to these questions.

The IRS tool to track your coronavirus-related payment is working. This allows you not only to see the status of your payment, but also to enter direct deposit information if your payment has not yet been completed.

Most people don’t need this tool. If you received a 2018 or 2019 tax refund by direct transfer and your bank account information remains the same, you do not need to provide any details to the IRS. If you get Social Security benefits, you also don’t have to do anything – even if you don’t usually file your tax return, the IRS has your details to provide you with benefits.

But if you’re wondering where your payment is located, you can check your status in just a few minutes.

To check the status of your payment, you must enter your Social Security number, date of birth, and mailing address. You may need to check the Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) from your last tax return and the amount you owe or receive a refund. To find your AGI, look at line 8b in the 2019 form 1040 or line 7 in the 2018 form 1040.

If you need to add billing information, you will need your bank account number and account numbers.

The site is likely to see a lot of volume over the next few days, so keep in mind that it may not function correctly.

Payments started earlier this week, but postage checks are expected to be sent weekly through early September.

If you need to provide information to the IRS because you usually do not file taxes, you can use this system . You can also update your address if you would like to receive payment by check.
