The IRS is sending the stimulus in three different ways: direct deposit for those who had their direct deposit information on their 2018/2019 tax returns, physical stimulus check, or EIP debit card. The IRS does not allow you to choose how the government sends the money to you. If you filed, and need status on your payment, contact the IRS at 1-800-919-9835
If you owe money, you must pay today or you will owe a fine. You can request a 3 month extension to October to file the paperwork but you do need to pay. There are short and long term payment plans. Don’t wrap up fines. If you need help filing, contact Expatriate Tax Returns.
If your income was less than $75,000 in 2019, you may qualify for the $1,200 stimulus form the IRS and another $500 per dependent. You must have an SSN and be a U.S. tax payer.
