How to receive yours quickly!
In order to guarantee an economic impact payment, you must have filed your 2018 taxes.
If your taxes have been filed for 2019, the IRS will use that information to determine how much the check will be and where it should be sent. If you have signed up with direct deposit from the IRS, the check will be deposited into your account.
According to the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the IRS, 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. Click here for more information.
For Social Security recipients who didn’t file taxes in 2018 or 2019, #IRS will use the information on form SSA-1099 for their economic impact payments. Social Security recipients will automatically receive the economic impact payment the same way they normally receive their Social Security benefits.
If you haven’t filed your taxes for 2019 yet, (deadline has been extended to July 15). The IRS will use your 2018 tax return to determine how much the check will be and where it will be sent. If you have signed up with direct deposit from the IRS, the check will be deposited into your account.
If you have not filed taxes for 2018, the IRS has a free file page available to use. Click here to file your 2018 taxes.
People who were planning on receiving paper checks and have moved since they filed their last returns should submit a change of address form, which normally takes four to six weeks to process.
The IRS has also set up a page on it’s site that it will update as more information becomes available. Click here for more information.
