My 2019 refund was offset, but initially looked like we would get a refund so our direct deposit information was provided. Once our return was process it was found we owed back taxes and the refund was offset. Even though we did not get a refund will we get a direct deposit of the stimulus since they have our banking information or a mailed paper check?

Thanks for your reply. To clarify, my question is not regarding eligibility as I know I’m eligible for the stimulus. My question specifically is regarding how I’ll receive it, since my refund was offset. My direct deposit information was provided as when we filed we were estimated to have a refund, but after processing it was determined we owed back taxes. Since there was no refund processed I am unsure if the stimulus will come as direct deposit or check.
I have the exact same concern. Please update if you receive your stimulus payment via the direct deposit information you provided, and I will do the same so we can validate whether or not IRS will use the direct deposit information provided for stimulus payments if The same payment method was not used for 2018 tax refunds. Good luck!
