FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How will the IRS know where to send my payment?
Economic impact payments: What you need to know
According to the IRS, “the vast majority of people do not need to take any action. The IRS will calculate and automatically send the economic impact payment to those eligible.”
If you already filed your 2019 tax returns, the IRS will use this information to calculate the payment amount.
If you have not filed your 2019 tax returns, the IRS will use information from your 2018 tax filing to calculate the payment.
The economic impact payment will be deposited directly into the same banking account reflected on the return filed. If the IRS does not have your current direct deposit information, learn more here.
Visit IRS.gov for more information.
