The IRS’s Get My Payment tool provides taxpayers with information about the status of their 2021 Economic Impact Payments. So, what information can you expect to receive when using the tool? Among other things, a payment status will inform you of whether your payment has been processed and whether it will be sent by direct deposit or mail. It will also provide a payment date if available. If you receive a message saying the IRS needs more information, your payment likely was unable to be delivered. To have your payment reissued as a direct deposit, provide routing and account numbers for a bank account. For more information, visit the Get My Payment FAQ web page.
