When to Expect Your Stimulus Money

Most Americans who had direct deposit set up on their tax return should start seeing their stimulus refund as soon as April 9th. The bulk of direct deposits should be received by April 15th.

If you did not have direct deposit listed on your most recently filed tax return, paper checks will start going out April 24th and are expected to be completely distributed by September 11th. 

The IRS will be opening a portal to allow individuals the ability to track their checks as well as add additional information such as direct deposit or change of address.

We will be keeping this up-to-date as more information becomes available.

How do they determine if you are qualified?

If you worked a job that withheld social security tax from your wages you are eligible as long as you were NOT claimed as a dependent on someone else's return.

They will use information from your 2019 return first (if filed already). If they don't have it filed, they will use 2018 if you haven't filed 2019. If you have NOT filed either year, they will use information they have gathered from the Social Security Administration.
