I understand a third round of Economic Impact Payments (EIP3) have been approved. When will I receive my payment?
According to the IRS, the third round of Economic Impact Payments, or “EIP3” is being issued in phases to eligible individuals. The IRS began sending the first batch of payments with an official payment date of March 17 and will continue to send payments to eligible individuals each week as they continue to process tax returns. Payments are being sent by direct deposit or through the mail as a check or a debit card. Eligible individuals should use the Get My Payment tool to find out when and how the EIP3 was sent. Please note the payment status for the first and second Economic Impact Payments is no longer available using the Get My Payment Tool. To get information on the first or second round of Economic Impact Payments, the IRS requires eligible individuals to view or create an online account. You can also check your mail for IRS Notices 1444 and 1444-B. Refer to the IRS website for more information.
Based on information from the IRS, if you did not receive a first and/or second Economic Impact Payment or if you received less than the full amount, you may be eligible to claim the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit and must file a 2020 tax return even if you do not usually file a tax return.
