Where’s My Stimulus?

  • The IRS is scrambling to get folks their stimulus checks but the process has so many things working against it, like aging technology and a reduced workforce due to budget cuts.
  • Then there’s the issue that the elderly or poor may not know how to use or even have access to a proposed web portal that would accept banking information to get stimulus money through direct-deposit.
  • Even though the White House said some direct deposits will be made as early as next week, around 90 million people will have to wait for their checks to be mailed.  Some payments may take longer, especially to those who made over $99,000 but lost income due to Coronavirus.  They may not be able to claim their money til 2021.
  • One former IRS commissioner told NPR the best thing to do is follow the IRS’ instructions, remember to file your taxes and avoid scams from those saying they have your money.  Oh, and don’t bother calling the IRS to ask about your money cause you ain’t getting through on the phones.
  • Have you been confused about how to get your stimulus check?
