When Will I Get My Stimulus Check?!

When Will I Get My Stimulus Check?!

The first wave of stimulus payments have been sent out and anyone who didn’t receive one is wondering, “When will I get my stimulus check?!” Well, we finally have an answer!

Who is getting a stimulus check?

As described in our 2020 Stimulus Check FAQ, you will receive a stimulus check if:

  • You meet certain income limits (no more than $99,000 as an individual or $198,000 as a couple)
  • You must have a Social Security number.
  • You must have filed a tax return for 2018 or 2019, or you submitted your non-filer information to the IRS.
  • You must not be claimed as someone’s dependent.

Why haven’t I got my stimulus check yet?

Direct deposits were sent to approximately 80 million people who had included their direct deposit information on their 2018 or 2019 federal return.

The IRS is now issuing paper checks to the remaining taxpayers. The IRS is prioritizing payments to the lowest earners first and will mail checks once per week.

When will I get my stimulus check?

According to Forbes, the checks will be issued weekly depending on your most recently reported AGI.

What does “payment status not available” mean?

If you’ve tried the “Get My Payment” tool and received an error that says “payment status not available,” you’ve probably wondered exactly what that meant. I can sympathize, because mine says the same thing.

According to the IRS, there are several reasons why you might see this error message.

  • The IRS stimulus check tracker doesn’t have your data yet.
  • You aren’t eligible.
  • You didn’t file your taxes or fill out the non-filer form.
  • You filled out the non-filer form and your information has not been processed yet.
  • You filed your taxes online with HR Block, TurboTax or Jackson Hewitt or another provider and have been affected by a glitch.

Basically, the IRS launched this tool before it had everyone’s information in it. The system is updated once per day with additional information. .
