Starting this Friday, a new feature from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will allow U.S. citizens to track the date their COVID-19 relief payment should arrive in the mail or be deposited into their bank account.
The Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) “Get My Payment” tool will also guide citizens through a process where they can submit their personal bank account information.
That process allows citizens to receive payments more quickly, as delivering paper checks may not begin until May.
The IRS is not contacting anyone to collect personal or bank account information.
Calls, texts, emails, and official-looking postcards or printouts that suggest otherwise are scams.
Checks purporting to show an overpayment are also scams.
