Economic Impact Payment Direct Deposit Portal Open

April 15, 2020

The IRS opened its direct deposit portal on its website this morning. By clicking on the "Get My Payment" button at, taxpayers can:

  • Enter their bank account information if they hadn't previously requested direct deposit on a return, or if they want to update their information
  • Confirm the payment type: direct deposit or check
  • Check their payment status
Taxpayers wanting to add their bank account information to speed up the receipt of their payment must provide all of the following information:
  • Their AGI from their most recent tax return submitted, either 2019 or 2018
  • The refund or amount owed from their latest filed tax return
  • Bank account type, account and routing numbers.
Note: It appears that if a taxpayer does not qualify for a payment due to income level, after entering the requested information a message stating "Payment Status Not Available" and a link to information on eligibility rules will be displayed.
