How long does it take the federal gov to cash my check

Question: I'm concerned because my check payment to the IRS hasn't been cashed yet. What should I do?

Answer:

Before contacting the IRS, first check with your financial institution to verify whether the check has cleared your account.

If it's been at least two weeks since you sent the payment to the IRS and your financial institution verifies that the check hasn't cleared your account, call the IRS's toll-free number at 800-829-1040 to ask if the payment has been credited to your tax account.

If the payment hasn't been credited and your check hasn't cleared, you may choose to place a stop payment order on the original check and send another payment. If you choose this option, the IRS won't charge a dishonored check penalty.
