If you have filed a 2019 or 2018 tax return and need to enter your direct deposit information, the portal is not yet available - https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/economic-impact-payments-what-you-need-to-know
The IRS does not have my direct deposit information. What can I do?
In the coming weeks, Treasury plans to develop a web-based portal for individuals to provide their banking information to the IRS online, so that individuals can receive payments immediately as opposed to checks in the mail.

That is Only if you have Not filed a 2019 tax return and you are not required a tax return and you are not receiving Social Security benefits - https://turbotax.intuit.com/stimulus-check/
If you don’t need to file
your taxes this year
If you’re not required to file taxes and don’t
receive Social Security benefits, use our free
Stimulus Registration for non-tax filers to
give the IRS your up-to-date mailing address
and direct deposit banking info.
Turbo tax registration with IRS claims that you can register 2019 return if you will not file the return due to minimum requirements. I didn't make enough money, so I won't file. I was hoping that the registration will allow me to provide banking info for the stimulus check. But no, Turbotax only collects the mailing address which i don't want to use.
Called the customer service and they wanted to charge me $30.00 to speak to the agent.
I never get refunds, so none of my previous filings with IRS had my bank information. It looks like I will have to file 2019 tax return on my own.
TURBOTAX -- FIX YOUR SOFTWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I did don't need to file taxes and put my direct deposit info in so i could stimulus check i looked at 1040 IRS accepted it shows XXXXX on direct deposit line why did turbotax ask for direct deposit and didn't even add it?
You can file a $1 return. You will be fine.
For the majority of us who are paying in it's a slow wait and slog. The idea that the treasury will build a portal is hysterical. Clients who have been waiting for tax returns for two months now are still waiting
Ive had my taxes deposited on a turbo tax card so that is the info on file so will the stimulus check be deposited on those as well or if not i cant find anywhere to update my banking info
