The federal government is expected to send a second round of economic impact payments (known as stimulus checks) to eligible Americans beginning today and extending over the first three weeks of January.
For most taxpayers, payments are automatic, and no action is needed. Eligible recipients who have previously received electronic payments from the IRS will receive payment through an ACH deposit, and all other eligible recipients will receive a check or pre-paid card sent via the U.S. Postal Service.
If you have any questions, would like to check the status of your payment or need to add your direct deposit information, please visit IRS.gov.
