The IRS announced on Wednesday, April 15th, the launch of its “Get My Payment” website, which permits taxpayers to check on the date they can expect to receive their economic impact payment and update their direct deposit information.
The IRS notes that the “Get My Payment” website will allow people to provide their direct deposit bank account information, if they did not use direct deposit on their 2018 or 2019 tax return, so they can receive their payment more quickly as well as find out when to expect the payments.
However, it is unclear how well the site is working at this time. While some users have been able to obtain their payment information, others are reporting that the site was giving them an error message indicating “Payment Status Not Available … we cannot determine your eligibility for payment at this time.”
