How to Track the Status of Your $1,400 Stimulus Check
I've been patiently waiting for my stimulus check to hit my bank account. I want to be able to get in on the stimulus checks jokes on Twitter, and it feels wrong jumping in on them when I don't yet have the money.
Officials at the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service said Friday that processing of the new round of stimulus payments has already begun, with the aim of having the first payments start showing up in bank accounts this weekend. It is estimated that 85% of Americans will be eligible for the payments and the goal is to have millions of the payments disbursed in the next few weeks.
Taxpayers who have provided bank information with the IRS will receive the direct-deposit payments, and others will get paper checks or debit cards mailed to them. If you are like me, and also wondering what the status is of your $1,400 stimulus check is, there is a handy tracker online to find out when it will be hitting your bank account.
The IRS has a "Get My Payment" tool on their website where you enter your social security number, date of birth, street address, and postal code. When I entered that information it told me that my payment was scheduled to be in my bank account later this week.
Here are some of my favorite stimulus checks Tweets from the past couple of days, sharing the irresponsible ways people are wanting to spend their stimulus checks. Some of them are absolute gems. This is what the internet was made for.
Yay for stimulus checks and all the fun memes that come with them. Have fun with your Biden Bucks.
