The IRS announced Friday that time is running out for ministers and other taxpayers to go to the Get My Payment website to enter their direct deposit information in order to receive an electronic economic impact payment. You must enter your bank account information, if needed, by noon on Wednesday, May 13. After that date, any stimulus payments that have not been processed will be transferred to the Bureau of Fiscal Services for paper checks to be delivered, which the IRS estimates will arrive beginning in late May to early June.
The Get My Payment tool gives eligible ministers and other taxpayers a projected economic impact payment deposit date with the information updated once daily, usually overnight. Ministers and other taxpayers who did not choose direct deposit on their last tax return can use this tool to input bank account information to receive their payment by direct deposit, which they will receive much sooner than a paper check.
