Federal Economic Impact Payments.
The Federal Government has begun distributing the first wave of Economic Impact Payments to assist in the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. For most people, payments will be automatic and no action is needed. For information on these payments, please visit the IRS Economic Impact Payment Information Center website.
To assist in tracking the status of your Economic Impact Payment, the IRS has developed a “Get My Payment” tool that can be found at IRS.gov/EIP. This tool allows you to:
- Confirm your payment type (direct deposit or mailed check).
- Enter bank account information for direct deposit, if you would otherwise receive a check payment.
- See the date your payment is scheduled to be direct deposited or mailed.
Additionally, we urge you to continue to be cautious of scam artists
looking to take advantage during this time. The IRS has stated that
they will not call, text you, email you or contact you on social
media asking for personal or bank account information – even related
to the economic impact payments.
