Stimulus money in your future? Track your check using a new tool from the IRS

Are you still waiting on your stimulus check to arrive or wondering if stimulus money is in your future? The Internal Revenue Service has created a new tool for taxpayers to use to track their stimulus money.

More than 80 million Americans have been issued $1,200 tax rebates this week as part of the government’s coronavirus economic stimulus package.

If you haven’t received your money, there’s now a way to track it online.

The IRS has launched a tool called Get My Payment, which allows taxpayers a way to see when their stimulus money will arrive and confirm how they want to be paid.

To track your rebate, you’ll be prompted to enter some tax information. The page will then tell you if you need to enter your bank account information to get the money directly deposited into your account.

The tool also gives the option of having a paper check mailed directly to you.
