According to information released by the Internal Revenue Service by April 17th you will be able to track your stimulus payment online. This applies to both electronic payments and paper checks.
The IRS â€œGet My Paymentâ€ tool is expected to guide citizens through a process where you submit your bank information and have the ability to track the status of your refund and receive payments faster. This service will be through the IRS website www.irs.gov .
The IRS is NOT contacting anyone to gather personal or banking information. The IRS warns that calls, texts, emails or official looking postcards concerning stimulus refunds are scams. Also be aware that checks that appear to show over payments are scams as well.
We will continue to track and update this story as information becomes available.
