IRS Enhances “Get My Payment” Online Application

The IRS announced significant enhancements to the “Get My Payment” tool to deliver an improved and smoother experience for Americans eligible to receive economic impact payments. “We delivered Get My Payment with new capabilities that did not exist during any similar relief program, including the ability to receive direct deposit information that accelerates payments to millions of people,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. For taxpayers to track the status of their payments, the tool will show the scheduled delivery date by direct deposit or mail and the last four digits of the bank account being used by the IRS for direct deposit purposes. If a bank account is not on file with the IRS, taxpayers may add one after providing their AGI and refund amount (or amount owed) from their most recent tax return. The IRS will post FAQs on www.irs.gov/coronavirus and provide updates as soon as they are available.
