STIMULUS CHECKS ON THE WAY SOON
Updated: Apr 4, 2020
FACT VS. FALSEHOOD THIS IS TRUTH: Right now - the stimulus proposal includes sending checks of up to $1200 to many Americans. These checks will be delivered to your bank account by direct deposit. NO ACTION BY YOU IS NECESSARY. These automatic deposits will be made for folks who have filed a tax return in 2019 or 2018 and received a federal refund by direct deposit. You should see this money in one to two weeks. If this isn't your case, there is a portal being creating on the IRS website.Be patient it will be a few days before it is functional.You can sign up for direct deposit of you stimulus check there.
I HAVE A WARNING! Scammers are already using the relief money to find new ways to trick you into giving it to them. If you receive a text, e-mail or even a phone call from someone claiming to be from the government with a check for you. BEWARE. DON'T FALL FOR THE TRAP! People are already reporting this. These fake messages will claim to be able to deposit $1,000 or more directly into your bank account and will likely ask for your banking information. Do not, under any circumstance, give away your personal information via text, e-mail, or phone.
