The IRS said this group of people will be able to track their stimulus check after April 3, which will be the date the Get My Payment tool will be updated.
The IRS and Treasury Department announced that individuals who do not normally file a tax return can expect to receive their stimulus checks on April 7.
The IRS says most payments will be electronic and will come in the form of direct deposits and payments to existing Direct Express cards.
“IRS employees are working tirelessly to once again deliver Economic Impact Payments to the nation’s taxpayers as quickly as possible. Our teams immediately began processing the data we received last week for federal benefit recipients,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig.
The IRS said it began working with other federal agencies last year to start sending stimulus checks to people who are not required to file taxes.
“This action, which had never occurred in previous stimulus efforts, minimized the risk and burdens to the American public during the pandemic. Due to regular changes in the federal benefit population, the IRS needed to receive updated information this month from other government agencies,” according to the release.
The IRS added that the Get My Payment tool will not be updated until April 3 and 4 for beneficiaries expecting a payment next week.
