The Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service recently announced that they will begin delivering a second round of Economic Impact Payments to millions of Americans as part of the implementation of the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021.
For most taxpayers, this payment is automatic and no further action is needed.
As of Monday, January 4, the IRS announced 15-20 million individuals who expected to receive their economic impact payments through direct deposit may receive payments via paper check instead. The IRS has opened its Get My Payment portal to allow individuals to view their EIP status and recommends visiting their EIP Information Center as well as Frequently Asked Questions for further updates.
We will continue to update this page as information becomes available from the IRS.
Many customers will receive their payment as direct deposit into the account most recently used for a tax refund or for social security payments.
If the IRS does not have your direct deposit details, checks are estimated to be mailed in January. Remember, there are several simple ways you can deposit your check with Lakeland Bank.
