COVID-19 Stimulus Check Information
How soon people get government stimulus checks due to the COVID-19 outbreak will depend on what banking information the IRS has on file for you.
According to Federal government officials Americans who have signed up for direct deposit with the IRS will get their stimulus checks within 2 weeks.
If the IRS does not have your bank account information, the wait will be much longer.
Government officials will deposit the stimulus payments directly into your bank account if you received your last tax refund or expect to receive this year’s refund through direct deposit.
A new web portal will be set up in the coming weeks where you will be able to give your banking details online.
It is being estimated that 140 million American households will get stimulus checks.
