If you’re a U.S. resident who is eligible to receive an Economic Impact Payment of $1,200 for individual or head of household filers, and $2,400 for married filing jointly you may be wondering when you will see the check. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) plans to send $1,200 stimulus checks via electronic payments later this week, one week sooner than was initially planned, according to an internal IRS memo reviewed by The Washington Post. The speed with which the checks are received will depend on the taxpayer’s method of filing taxes and income level.

If you file electronically, you will be among the first to receive the check. Electronic payments can be distributed quickly.

“If we have your information, you’ll get it within two weeks,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a White House press briefing on April 2.

In other words, taxpayers who file electronically would receive their stimulus checks within two weeks, around mid-April, through direct deposit.

For those who have not filed a tax return in 2019 and 2018 or do not have direct-deposit information on file with the IRS, in the coming weeks, Treasury plans to develop a “web-based portal for individuals to provide their banking information to the IRS online, so that individuals can receive payments immediately as opposed to checks in the mail”.

If the IRS doesn’t have your bank information, it will have to issue and mail a paper check to your last known address. These paper checks won’t start being sent out until April 24, as the government lacks taxpayer banking information and thus some of these checks won’t reach their recipients for up to five months, till September.

If you’re receiving Social Security and disability income you will also receive the stimulus check, most likely electronically, even if you don’t typically file a tax return, because the government already has your information.

Close to 80% of U.S. adults will see stimulus checks of up to $1,200 for individuals and $2,400 for married couples as a part of the $2 trillion “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act” in action.
