Economic Impact Payments to Start This Week
In a press release issued April 10, the Internal Revenue Service reported that Economic Impact Payments will be distributed automatically to most people starting this week.
Eligible taxpayers who filed tax returns for 2019 or 2018 will receive the payments automatically. Automatic payments will also go in the near future to people receiving Social Security retirement, survivors, disability or survivor benefits and Railroad Retirement benefits.
The IRS also launched a
new web tool
allowing quick registration for those who don't normally file a tax return.
