The IRS and U.S. Department of the Treasury today launched a new “Get My Payment” web tool, at a time when tens of millions of Americans are getting a “stimulus” check deposited into their accounts.

The free app allows taxpayers who filed 2018 or 2019 federal tax returns but did not provide their banking information to the IRS to provide the agency with direct deposit information.

Submitting that info will allow citizens to get the economic impact payments, also called “stimulus” payments, directly put into their bank accounts, instead of having to wait for a paper check in the mail.

The free app can be found here.

The tool also will allow users to track the status of their payments. They will need to enter basic information, including their Social Security number, date of birth and mailing address.

The IRS says the “Get My Payment” tool is an online app that can be used on any desktop, phone or tablet. The app does not need to be downloaded from an app store.
