How to get paid:
If you filed your taxes in 2019 or 2018 no action is required. The IRS will use your tax return information to calculate the payment amount, and Direct Deposit that payment into the same banking account reflected on the return filed. If no banking information is available, a check will be mailed. Use the IRS’s Get My Payment tool to check the status of your payment.
If you did not file a tax return in 2019 or 2018 and do not receive Social Security, disability, or Railroad Retirement benefits, use the IRS’s tool to register for a payment.
