IRS’s “Get My Payment” portal is up and running.  Use it to enter direct deposit information to get your stimulus payment quicker.  Don’t be surprised if the portal is slow to work or has issues as it is brand new and probably experiencing high volumes of access.  Go to this website:

The IRS should start issuing Economic Impact Payments soon.  If you filed a 2018 or 2019 tax return and your income is below $75,000 if single or $150,000 if married, you need to do nothing so long as the IRS has your direct deposit bank account information.  If they don’t, they are developing an online portal so that you can enter bank account info to get your payment quicker.  Go to this link to get more information:
