Government Stimulus Checks:

These are coming, if you haven’t filed taxes for 2018 or 2019 we suggest that you do that immediately! Click here to file free.

The checks will be based on your previous year’s taxes and if you signed up for direct deposit, they will be deposited into your account. If you normally do a check by mail, the check will be mailed to you. 

Social Security beneficiaries who are not typically required to file tax returns will not need to file an abbreviated tax return to receive an Economic Impact Payment. Instead, payments will be automatically deposited into their bank accounts.
