We are still waiting for IRS guidance regarding updating or providing direct deposit information for the stimulus payments and how they will be distributed to these type of accounts.

 

We will have more information once the government finalizes the details.

In the meantime, you can visit the following links for the most recent updates:

It depends upon what or where you entered your information.

 

If you have filed a tax return in 2018 or 2019, you do not need to do anything.  The IRS will use the most updated information from your tax return.

 

If you have Social Security income and are not required to file a tax return, you do not need to do anything.  The IRS will use the information used to deposit your Social Security payments.

 

If you have not filed a tax return for 2018 or 2019 because you did not have a filing requirement, you can use the link below to register for your stimulus tax payment.

You would only use the above site if you do not have any income tax filing requirements for 2019.

 

The following links can also be used for additional information.

No, you did it right.

 

The stimulus check is not a refund, it is just a payment authorized by the government.

 

You filed a zero dollar return with TurboTax so the IRS would know where to send or deposit your stimulus check.
