Has anybody received your 2nd stimulus check? If so by mail or direct deposit?
Mailed checks were “scheduled” to go out Jan 6th. You can check the status at irs.gov “Get My Payment” I haven’t received mine yet
Mine says info not available. So, I guess I have to do a tax credit for some reason. No idea, because I qualify again.
Same boat as DogDayAfternoon. No problem receiving 1st stimulus via direct deposit and nothing has changed i.e., bank account, address, income, etc. go figure?

The one thing that changed is that you did your 2020 taxes. If you used a service like turbotax, they set up accounts for you for the future tax seasons. You can thank congress, who knew this would happen, for sitting on a fix. There's a lot more detail going into them making the account part but it does boil down to them not protecting against it when it was known for months prior to the 2nd check going out.
The only thing that changedis that they used 2018 return for first but used 2019 for second..unless you filed 2019 really early

www.nytimes.com/2021/01/06/business/stimulus-payment-delay-irs.amp.html tells what happened with turbotax and h and r block
The thresholds did go slightly lower in the past round.....
People who file taxes as heads of household and earn up to $112,500 are eligible for the full $600 payment. The payments phase out completely at $124,500. In the first round of stimulus checks, payments phased out at $136,500.
Married joint filers with an AGI of up to $150,000 are eligible to receive a total of $1,200. Payments for married couples phase out at $174,000. In the first round of stimulus checks, payments phased out at $198,000.
In the "scheduled for Jan 6" with the post office I am concerned. Last year it took 9 days to get from Hack Middle School to my house in Kenwood. But we can hope....
I'm still trying to figure out how to fill out something or whatever to check on why I'm in the 'not available' section. Nothing at all changed in the last year on my end and I got the first, but there is no direct information I'm finding. I guess I'll just 'have' to input for a tax credit for it - whoopdee doo and probably won't get the 2k they're going to do?
@Yesimpc I haven't yet filed 2020 taxes and I do not use the services of H&R Block nor use Turbo Tax when I file. Guess I'll be taking the tax credit when I do file.

Although scheduled for Jan 6, I haven't seen anything yet confirming checks were printed. I've also seen on line comments that everyone who did not get a direct deposit says "data not available". So far, I figure they haven't printed anything and that's the only reason for not seeing a status yet.
How did you file your taxes?... did they send you a check or direct deposit?

I didn't owe any taxes nor was I owed a refund, so there was no need for that.
Have not received the 600 or my 2019 tax return check. Both would be direct deposited. Anyone not get your return yet either?
Steve you obviously didn't need the money if you only got $67. LOL... Not that we needed it either. We haven't suffered any lost wages. I just paid off debt with money we got.
Just a quick up date....I see in the post office recap that mine for 600 should be in the mailbox today. Hopefully, the mailperson will put it in the right box. Last time a fellow put something in the box above mine......
Mine still says info unavailable on IRS site. Figures that things go bad and then you need it and have no clue why this time you have to claim a tax credit. That doesn't help. Now afraid the next round will be same thing for 2k, so that's going to hurt.
DDA; perhaps not. This round was approved by the House eons ago and then delayed from at Congress because of, well you know, and then chaotically rushed to market. Meanwhile, the IRS knew of the issue but had not rectified and now, up against the wall, had no time to do it, the impossible schedule being set by law. We can hope the next version will happen with more structure and less chaos and that the IRS recognizes already that it's going to happen. Then again, pigs might fly :>)
hava --- THANK YOU. And the Eagle has landed!!!
I got a rock. whomp whomp
I'm going to guess what Mmadone means by "recap" is you can sign up for a USPS Informed Delivery, which sends you an email about what will be delivered that day. I have it & it's nice to know what's coming that day.
The recap is an email that I get each postal day that tells me what is supposed to be delivered in the mailbox. I did get the check today.
we got a check for over $1000. To be honest, I'm not sure why it was handed out to us as we are not suffering (fortunately). They should have limited the checks to those who are unemployed in my opinion.
Got my check today. Just read Biden is pushing for a $1400 check but I won’t hold my breath.
Mine was direct deposit in the beginning of the month. My mom got hers mailed to her yesterday. She had gotten direct deposit the first time but then her M & T bank branch closed up and she changed banks. I couldn't find where to notify the IRS that she had a new account for the direct deposit. The IRS site said that if you missed it and were entitled to if they would either mail it or you could fill out a form when preparing your taxes to get it.
Just got my check for $2,400 today... I only hope that Uncle Joe gets off his old ass and gets me my extra free money before I have to file for 2020. If I do, I'm not gonna see a dime.
Do you think all checks for $600.00 are out yet?
My wife received hers but I did not. Last time we received one check payable to both of us.
Wonder who keeps control on this benefit ???
Did you check Get My Payment to see when or if your check was scheduled to be mailed?
IRS deadline was Jan 15th so some may still be in transit.
Really sucks to not be eligible by such a small margin. Not even for 3 children 6 and under. Daycare in today's world is astronomical. Hope this nightmare ends by fall of 2021
I know I check that IRS payment section daily and still 'unavailable', not enough info, etc. it says. Why? I have no idea. I got the last one and not a thing changed in my life. I guess maybe they think I died. (although, dead people got them last time. )

If you used the free tax filing service VITA they may have not efiled your 2019 tax return because it fell beneath the required amount required to file . I've heard United Way always efiles the return no matter the amount , but Norwescap is a bunch of clueless amateur bunglers who leave you to cleanup their incompetence .That is you will have to pay someone to do your 2020 taxes right and file the form with your 2020 return to include the stimulus that you would have gotten had the 2019 return been filed .
