Millions of Americans are eagerly expecting that every qualified adult and child will receive a $600 second economic stimulus check. The US Internal Revenue Service said on Tuesday that it had begun to distribute checks through direct deposit that night, and this process will continue until next week.
The tax office added that it will mail paper checks on December 30 to people who have not filed their bank account information in the IRS. But even so, the timeline still makes many people wonder when the check will be deposited into their account accurately, especially on websites where the status of IRS payments cannot be viewed.

However, the IRS “Get My Payment” website is currently offline. The agency said that although no date has been specified, it expects its “Get My Payment” tool to be operational again in “a few days.”
Steber pointed out that this is a problem, although according to the IRS statement, the site should be launched next week. He said: “The updated website should contain information about the first and second stimulus payments.”
The site allowed people to provide or update their bank account data to the IRS this spring. It also informs people when to deposit checks into their accounts. But it also has malfunctions.Someone reportedFor example, “payment status is unavailable”, while others are locked out of the website.
“Payment is automatic”

Steber said that these payments will not be taxed because they are not considered income earned. However, he added: “Taxpayers should retain the IRS Circular 1444, which shows the exact amount they received in order to coordinate their payments so that they can receive any due on their 2020 tax return.

How much will I get?
The IRS is sending—Not the 2,000 dollars Published by President Donald Trump.

Although the possibility of stimulus checks is unlikely to increase to $2,000, the US Treasury Department said it will be able to respond. In a statement issued on December 29, the U.S. Treasury Department said: “If more legislation is enacted to increase the amount of funding, the economic impact payments already issued will be made up as soon as possible.”
In the second round of payment, the target of guidance is US$600 for singles whose income does not exceed US$75,000, and US$1200 for married couples whose income does not exceed US$150,000.
Then, the amount of income of people whose income exceeds these thresholds drops, and singles with incomes of more than $87,000 and married couples with incomes of more than $174,000 are completely eliminated. Children under 17 will receive $600 each. 17-year-old children and adult dependents (such as college students and some dependent disabled persons on tax returns claiming to be relatives) are not eligible.
The IRS added that more people are eligible to participate in the second round of stimulus inspections than the first round.
The IRS stated: “According to the earlier Civil Procedure Code, the joint return of a couple whose only one member has a social security number is usually not eligible for payment-unless they are members of the military.” “However, this The new law of December changed and expanded this provision.”
