2nd stimulus check

You did not ask a question so here is some information that might help



The IRS will use the same banking information for the 2nd stimulus that they used for the first one.  If that account (or card) is closed then the stimulus will go back to the IRS and they will mail you a check.


See this information from the IRS:


From the IRS:



How do I find out if the IRS is sending me a payment?

People can check the status of both their first and second payments by using the Get My Payment tool, available in English and Spanish only on The tool is being updated with new information, and the IRS anticipates the tool will be available again in a few days for taxpayers.


How will the IRS know where to send my payment? What if I changed bank accounts?

The IRS will use the data already in our systems to send the new payments. Taxpayers with direct deposit information on file will receive the payment that way. For those without current direct deposit information on file, they will receive the payment as a check or debit card in the mail. For those eligible but who don’t receive the payment for any reason, it can be claimed by filing a 2020 tax return in 2021. Remember, the Economic Impact Payments are an advance payment of what will be called the Recovery Rebate Credit on the 2020 Form 1040 or Form 1040-SR.



Where can I get more information?

For more information about Economic Impact Payments and the 2020 Recovery Rebate, key information will be posted on Later this week, you may check the status of your payment at For other COVID-19-related tax relief, visit




P.S.   If you just do not KNOW what account you had your 1st stimulus deposited to, please look at either your own tax return from the past year or at the filing instruction sheet that is part of the pdf for that return.  The banking information you used is there.  We cannot look it up for you.

2nd stimulus check

There should be an update on this now that we know the IRS issued the money to the 3rd party banks involved with TurboTax and HR Block. There should be no issue with mine since nothing has changed and the 1st deposit went in fine. Crazy how the easiest ones where there shouldn't be an issue are the ones having issues...

If you paid TurboTax with your refund last year, TurboTax has provided the IRS with your correct account information, and the IRS is working to send your payment to you within days. Please see this article.
