As eligible Americans wait to receive their Economic Impact Payments to help mitigate the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) the IRS says they’ll soon have a way to track the payments. Similar to the IRS “Where’s My Refund” tracker, this new tool will be called “Get My Payment.” If you qualify for a payment based on your income, you can check the status, including the date the check is scheduled to be deposited into your bank account or mailed to you. If the delivery hasn’t been scheduled, you can use the tool to add your bank account information if you haven’t already, to help speed the payment. Note: The IRS says this tool is expected to be available on its website on April 17.
