Tax return/stimulus check

I filed my taxes on 1/27/20 and it was accepted and should be direct deposited.  I have not received my tax refund as of yet.  Will I receive the stimulus check as a direct deposit even if the IRS has not issued/deposited my tax return as of yet?

If you entered your DD info on your return, that should be how you get your stimulus payment.

Will I get or even though I have not received my tax return for this year yet?

Tax return/stimulus check

It depends.


Both payments are not directly related to each other.  One is for your tax return while the other is a stimulus payment related to the Covid-19 pandemic.  


You can check the status of your tax return refund by using the following link.

The IRS is planning to start issuing stimulus payments in the next few days.
