“Get My Payment” App to Arrive Next Week:

The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the IRS are launching the “Get My Payment” app next week.  At that time, I will update this post with additional information and relevant links.

The app is free and will allow taxpayers who filed their tax return in 2018 or 2019 but did not provide their banking information on their return to submit direct deposit information. The app will also let taxpayers track the status of their economic impact payment.

Once they submit their direct deposit info, the taxpayer will get their Economic Impact Payments in their bank accounts quickly, rather than waiting on a check in the mail.

For taxpayers to track the status of their payment, they will need to enter basic information in the “Get My Payment” app:

  • Social Security Number
  • Date of birth
  • Mailing address

Taxpayers who want to add their bank account information to speed receipt of their payment will also need to provide the following additional information:

  • Their Adjusted Gross Income from their most recent tax return submitted, either 2019 or 2018
  • The refund or amount owed from their latest filed tax return
  • Bank account type, account and routing numbers

Taxpayers who did not file a tax return in 2018 or 2019 can use the portal mention in a previous blog by clicking on the “Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here” button.  Below is a link to the IRS site:

Taypayers who filed 2018 or 2019 tax returns with direct deposit information or receive Social Security do not need to take action. You will automatically receive payment in their bank accounts.
