If your third stimulus check hasn’t come, here’s how to track your IRS payment status

Has your third stimulus check still not arrived? Before you start getting worried, check your bank account to see if it’s pending deposit — it could also be stuck en route in the mail. It’s possible the IRS hasn’t sent it yet or maybe there’s an issue with your payment.

Here’s how to claim up to thousands in child care expenses and what we know about a possible fourth stimulus payment. We update this story often.

The tool will display a message with information about your payment. You can see things like whether your money was sent or is scheduled to be sent, the payment method (direct deposit, paper check or EIP card) and the date your stimulus money was issued. It may also say it can’t yet determine your status — see more below about error messages.

We currently believe the IRS payment tracking tool does not give you the status of a plus-up payment, if you’re due one…Read more>>
