Treasury Checks for Economic Impact Payments:
The IRS will begin rolling out Economic Impact Payments in April 2020. For most taxpayers, no further action is needed for those who filed tax returns in 2018 and 2019 and for most seniors and retirees. The IRS will automatically deposit your payment into your bank account using the information you provided with your 2019 tax return. You will not be able to change it.
The U.S. Treasury will start printing and mailing economic impact payment checks, beginning with checks with a pay date of April 24, 2020, and weekly thereafter. Checks will be mailed daily beginning on Saturday, April 18, 2020, until the checks are delivered, with twice daily mail pick-ups beginning Monday, April 20, 2020. Estimated check volume is approximately 5 to 7 million checks per week.
Check on the Status of Your Economic Payment
Use the "Get My Payment" application on the IRS website to check your payment status or confirm your payment type (direct deposit or check).

With the rollout of economic impact payments, there’s an increased risk of scams.
Thousands of people have lost millions of dollars and their personal information to tax scams. Scammers use the regular mail, telephone, or email to set up individuals, businesses, payroll and tax professionals.
