With the first round of Economic Impact Payments being distributed by the Federal Government, as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, we wanted to reach out with some helpful information.

  • Eligible taxpayers who filed tax returns for either 2019 or 2018 will automatically receive an economic impact payment. Some as soon as April 15th.
    • The payments are coming in waves, meaning not everyone will be included in the first round of payments. Please have patience and check your account with online banking.

  • 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 are eligible and the IRS does not have your ACH information for direct deposit, you can expect to receive funds by check in the mail. Or you can submit your direct deposit information with them here: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments
  • If you didn’t file a tax return in 2018 or 2019, visit the IRS’s website to fill out and file the correct information to get your payment.

  • Social Security recipients not typically required to file tax returns will automatically receive economic impact payments
