Who is eligible for Economic Impact Payments?

Please reference the IRS fact sheet here for complete, detailed information regarding eligibility.

In general, tax filers with adjusted gross income up to $75,000 for individuals and up to $150,000 for married couples filing joint returns will receive the full $1,400 payment, plus an additional $1,400 per dependent.

Those with incomes higher than $75,000 will receive a prorated amount until the cut-off income of $80,000, if they have no dependents. For couples, the full benefit will apply to those earning up to $150,000 and will phase out as income approaches $160,000.
Individuals who earn more than $80,000 a year and married couples earning more than $160,000 would not receive a payment.
 

How will Economic Impact Payments be sent?

Payments will be sent via direct deposit, check or prepaid debit card.
 

When will I receive my Economic Impact Payment?

Eligible customers who have previously filed tax returns via direct deposit, could see payments pending in their accounts by March 17, or earlier.

Paper checks and pre-paid debit cards will be issued to eligible recipients whose bank information is not on file with the IRS. We do not know the exact timing of when these will be issued, but it could be weeks before some eligible recipients receive these due to the volume being issued.

You can check the status of your payment using the Get My Payment tool available at IRS.gov.
 

How will the IRS know where to send my payment?

The IRS will use the information already on file to send Economic Impact Payments. If you have direct deposit information on file with the IRS and are eligible to receive a payment, you will likely receive it via direct deposit.
 
If you do not have direct deposit information on file and are eligible to receive a payment, you will likely receive it via check or prepaid debit card.
 
Note: The method through which you receive the second Economic Impact Payment could differ from the method through which you received a payment the first time.
 

Be Alert

The IRS urges taxpayers to be on the lookout for scam artists trying to use the economic impact payments as cover for schemes to steal personal information and money. Remember, the IRS 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. Also, watch out for emails with attachments or links claiming to have special information about economic impact payments or refunds.
