The IRS will be processing CARES Act payments (EIP1) until the end of 2020, and Consolidated Appropriations Act payments (EIP2) until January 15, 2021 (for most).

Eligible persons who don’t receive their payments by the respective dates should look to see if the IRS has sent those payments by using the Get My Payment tool, requesting an account transcript, or looking back through their mail for Notices 1444 and 1444-B, which are payment confirmations mailed by the IRS roughly 15 days after it issues an economic impact payment. If your payment has been issued, try to determine what happened to the money before you file your taxes.
