Why is my refund showing $0.00 when I qualify for $1,200.00?

If you are referring to the stimulus check amount of 1,200, that's not how it works.

 

Your refund from your tax return will not include any amount from the stimulus check.  They are two separate things.  The refund calculated by the program on your tax return shows how much you will receive based on your 2019 tax information.  The IRS will send you the $1,200 as a separate payment later.  

 

If you did not provide your banking information on your tax return, 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.  Stay tuned!

Thank you. I only filled for stimulus. I wasn’t required to file. How can I see if the stimulus is actually coming to me? How can I change my account information?

To help everyone check on the status of their payments, the IRS is building a second new tool expected to be available for use by April 17. Get My Payment will provide people with the status of their payment, including the date their payment is scheduled to be deposited into their bank account or mailed to them.

 

An additional feature on Get My Payment will allow eligible people a chance to provide their bank account information so they can receive their payment more quickly rather than waiting for a paper check. This feature will be unavailable if the Economic Impact Payment has already been scheduled for delivery.
