IRS Announces Wednesday Deadline for Requesting Stimulus Payment

Tax return check on 1040 form background

If you’re still waiting for your $1,200 stimulus payment and haven’t registered for it on the IRS website, you’d better get moving — the Internal Revenue Service has set a Wednesday deadline to file direct deposit requests.

Making the announcement Monday, the IRS says they’ve already sent out about 130 million payments over the past four weeks and they want to wrap up the first phase of the massive money giveaway. So they’re encouraging anyone who hasn’t received their money to use the “Get My Payment” tool by noon Wednesday to provide their direct deposit information.

After that, the IRS plans to start preparing millions of files to send over to the Bureau of Financial Services, which will cut paper checks for people who don’t have traditional bank accounts. They’ll be sent out between the end of May and mid-June, the agency says.

Are you still waiting for your check? What did you spend your $1,200 on?
