Taxpayers who would like to provide bank info to receive a direct deposit of their Economic Impact Payment (EIP) can use the Get My Payment tool. The tool will detail the type and status of your stimulus payment, and it will also request any additional information needed by the IRS to deliver your payment.

If you had a refund on your 2018 tax return and included account information to receive a direct deposit, the IRS will use that account information to deposit your stimulus check.

Important: Be alert for phone or email phishing scams trying to collect (and steal) your banking information.
