The IRS has updated its Get My Payment app to make it easier for you to track the arrival of your coronavirus relief payment of up to $1,200. That is good news if you've tried to use the IRS tracking app to view the status of your 2020 check but couldn't find your payment schedule. CNET readers report that the IRS tracker website is still not perfect, but it's now working better. 

The IRS tracking tool is designed to show you when you can expect a check or if it's been sent. Prior to May 13, you could also use it to set up direct deposit with the IRS, but the deadline to give the federal agency your banking details through the Get My Payment tool has passed, the IRS said. We'll get into all the details, so read on for more information about how it works.

A few quick, important notes before we dive in:



You had until Wednesday, May 13 to set up direct deposit. If you didn't meet that deadline to give the IRS your banking details, you'll receive your check in the mail, unless you had already set direct deposit.

Here's how to determine if you're eligible to receive a check and how much you might get for yourself, your family and your children, even if you qualify as SSI.

Did you know you can track your stimulus check in the US mail? It's free and easy to set up.

Will there be a second round of stimulus checks? It's too soon to say, but this is what we know.

How to track the status and arrival of your stimulus check from the IRS 

If you're eligible for a check, the IRS lets you track your your payment schedule through its Get My Payment web portal. Some people have reported having trouble using the portal, and the IRS said it has significantly improved the Get My Payment app to help you set up and track the date of your stimulus payment.

How do I know if my check is in the mail?
In April, the IRS began transferring the first stimulus payments to the accounts of tens of millions of US residents who've set up direct deposit with the government. But not everyone gets an electronic transfer.

Till all the checks go out, the Get My Payment app can tell you when your payment will be issued and how. The IRS will also mail you letter about 15 days after it issues your payment, with information on the amount you received and how you received it.


How do I know that my status information is accurate and what if I get an error message?
Unfortunately, you may see confusing messages when using the status tool -- so much so that the IRS explains common status messages in an FAQ. You may get a message if it's impossible to determine your eligibility, for example, or your payment status is not available. We're looking into it, but so far we've unearthed a handful of reasons why Get My Payment may not be able to track your payment status. 

The IRS once a day updates its status tracking information on who has and hasn't received a payment. 


You don't need to sign up to receive stimulus money

To receive the stimulus payment, you may need to file a tax return for 2018 or 2019 if you are normally required to. You can still do that now. Here's how.

Senior citizens, Social Security recipients, railroad retirees and other beneficiaries who typically aren't required to file tax returns will not need to file one to receive a payment.

Again, the agency will mail a letter to a taxpayer's last known address within 15 days after sending the payment. The letter will contain information on when and how the payment was made and how to report to the IRS if you didn't receive your check.
