Just checked into it and I'm not getting it. Or I'm getting it months from now. I filed taxes but owed money. They're only using direct deposit info for people getting refunds. Sneaky trick, they're good. Too bad too because I desperately need the money.
There is a tool on the site where you can supply your bank info if you owed taxes. That's what I did. Go to IRS.gov and click on "Get My Payment". Have a copy of your 2019 return (you will need to input info from it) and your checkbook (for routing and account number). It's fast and easy.
We got ours (and I guess all government money is "ours" to begin with).
I know some people really need this, but I think they made the threshold a little high. Many retired people who recieve social security may also have a company pension or retirement plan, also IRAS, investments or rental property, and even HubPages income. Expenses may be lower if you own a paid off house don't have debt and don't live in an extravagant style.
I am in the same boat. Punishing owers for not over paying on their taxes. Mine is worse though - I get "Status Not Available” which is concerning - but I guess they will sort it out, or just run out of money, like they did with the small business loans. Such a scam.
I haven't gotten mine, either. The IRS site (https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment) says my information is not on file, in spite of filing for both 2018 and 2019. All I can figure is that I didn't get a refund either year - had to pay - and the bank account used for payment is not considered a "direct deposit" account.
I've updated the information at the link with the same bank account. We'll see if it works.
For the life of me, I couldn't find a place to enter bank info. If you are a filer, and owe, you can only enter info for paying what you owe, which their FAQ says they don't use for sending stimulus payments. And if you are required to file you can't use the non-filer option. And when I check on the status it just says they have no info on my eligibility and no link to enter information. Typical.
It's interesting in Canada you just have to apply online, give them your info, and you have a payment, a bigger one, within days. But here in the US, unless you're a bank or corporation, it's exceedingly difficult to get you a payment on money you actually need from a government you've definitely paid into; they are incredibly inefficient when they want to be and efficient when they want to be. They certainly have no problem effectively decimating whole countries with bombs but can't get a low wage worker needed money during a crisis. Sh-t hole country. Need to start looking for a job in Canada.
They suck at everything they try to do. Sick bastards can't even pay the people who pay them taxes. How many "folks" got to pay no taxes and get a stimulus check - Mortons and Ruth Chris steakhouse each get $20 million a piece - I read about both, could be just one or none. Sounds sick to me. I could go on, but i'll just leave the puke here, and move along.
Maybe this can help somebody. I just saw it on the KGO SF website. The article is titled “Did you get a Payment Status Not Available error on the IRS stimulus check portal? Here's what that means” Here’s the link:
It is made difficult because the US insists on having a privatized and fragmented tax-filing system. I am surprised that it is working as well as it is. In Canada it is easier because everyone files directly using a government portal.
I agree. My family didn't need it either, so we are spending it on local businesses and such, putting it back out into the community. You will have to report it as income for your next filing. It falls under tax grants.
Alas, still no stimulus checks for the Social Security folks. AdSense is however paying off their website customers. I just got mine and am happy with the world. As for the SS check I'm due, it's only a matter of time.
The govt. web site tells me mine will be mailed April 24th. Mailed, after filling out their request for direct deposit bank information and after using the same bank for years to pay taxes from and receive direct deposit SSA payments.
I'm still foaming at the mouth over the IRS suddenly abandoning SS direct deposit people who also happened to have filled non direct deposit tax forms. Apparently, the IRS decided it was too complicated for them to reconcile the two database. Leastwise, we are now allowed to submit our direct deposit data.
I just checked. They are now promising a direct deposit payment is forthcoming. US postal service will not be involved. This is a great weight off my mind. The delivery service where I live is horrendous. If they were to send a paper check, the odds would be 50:50 I never would have seen it.
If you filed taxes and the tax forms don't have your direct deposit information, they are sending you a paper check. They don't care if they already have your direct deposit information from your Social Security Direct Deposit Account, they are still going to send you a paper check and it could be as late as August.
I have to wait for the USPS. And as my collections lawyer husband says, it ain't over until 90 days after the check clears. Although in this case, I don't think the federal government can file a bankruptcy. :-) Still, I'll believe it when I see it.
Mailbox thefts have become absolutely rampant. The cluster mailboxes are not just being broken into, the whole units are being yanked up (or unbolted) off the cement sidewalks and taken away. The thieves really want those stimulus checks... If one knows the approx time time deliveries are made, it is best to be there and waiting. Pain in the neck, but no choice.
I am locked out of the system. It said I just needed to add my bank account info, but you need your tax return info to authenticate yourself. I had it, but IRS was not believing my info. Now it tells me I am not authorized to access the server. Good times.
I guess I'll wait for a paper check with DJT's signature on it, since it came from his personal bank account.
My adsense account says that in June they have sent my check, but have not received it yet. I checked my mailing address, its correct (unchanged), I have received previous checks in time.Has anybody has that issue too?
I really wonder what eBay is up to some times. They sent an email today telling me, in the most positive spin that they could, that they were removing the option for direct bank deposit from their auctions by June. Instead, the only options you'll have as a seller is cash on pick-up or PayPal. Now...
I have my Google account set up for EFT. I followed their instructions and put the amount of their token deposit on the verification page. It was accepted and confirmed, and I'm told payment date is 5/26/10.It is now the 29th and there is still no deposit to my account. This is...
I've made a little money this month from Amazon. Can I leave it in my account for several months and not request payment until the sum gets larger? Does the payment go to my checking account, Paypal, or is it in the form of a paper check? Thanks!!
