Economic Impact Payments

As part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, many U.S. taxpayers will receive an Economic Impact Payment, also known as a stimulus payment. Eligible recipients may receive a payment directly deposited into the bank account used on their tax return. Other eligible recipients may receive a check.  No action is needed by taxpayers who filed tax returns in 2018 and 2019 and most seniors and retirees.  Visit the IRS' dedicated website for full details or click here.
