    Your money will be deposited into your direct deposit account you used when you filed your 2019 tax return.
  • What if I did not file my 2019 tax return?

    Your money will be deposited into your direct deposit account you used when you filed your 2018 tax return.
  • What if I did not file my 2018 tax return?


    You need to file a 2019 tax return or 2018 tax return to get your Electronic Impact Payment (Stimulus) payment. We are awaiting further instructions from Internal Revenue Service(IRS).
  • I am not typically required to file a tax return. Can I still receive my payment?

    Yes. The IRS will use the information on the Form SSA-1099 or Form RRB-1099 to generate Economic Impact Payments to recipients of benefits reflected in the Form SSA-1099 or Form RRB-1099 who are not required to file a tax return and did not file a return for 2019 or 2018. This includes senior citizens, Social Security recipients and railroad retirees who are not otherwise required to file a tax return.
    Since the IRS would not have information regarding any dependents for these people, each person would receive $1,200 From IRS.GOV
  • Do I have to pay taxes on my Electronic Impact Payment (Stimulus) payment?
    No, the Electronic Impact Payment (Stimulus) payment is not taxable.
  • Is there any one who will not get a Electronic Impact Payment (Stimulus) check or will get less than what they should receive?
    Yes. Only three groups of taxpayers.
    • Taxpayers with Social Security or Railroad Retirement benefits (SSA-1099 or RRB-1099) and who have qualifying child dependent(s).
    • Taxpayers with Social Security or Railroad Retirement benefits (SSA-1099 or RRB-1099) and whose spouse had no income and no SSA-1099 and no RRB-1099.
    • Taxpayers who do not need to file a tax return. (For example, who have income less than standard deduction and hence do not meet the filing requirement. For a more detailed regulation, please refer to Publication 501 )
