The IRS has launched a new website to help expedite and track stimulus checks. The website allows you to check your eligibility for a stimulus check, the status of your payment, input your bank information for a direct deposit, and manage other information. If you choose to add your bank account information to expedite the receipt of your payment, be prepared to provide information such as the following:
- Your AGI (Adjusted Gross Income) from your most recent tax return submitted, either 2019 or 2018
- The refund or amount owed from your latest filed tax return
- Bank account type, account and routing numbers.
If you do not qualify for a payment, a message stating “Payment Status Not Available” should be displayed. Please know that currently the site is experiencing a significant amount of traffic, so be prepared for a long wait time when you login.

As always, please call if you have any questions. We are here for you!
