How You'll Receive the Payment
If you qualify and filed a 2020 or 2019 tax return, your payment will be deposited directly into the same banking account used for tax filing purposes. If you have not yet filed your 2020 tax return, the account used for your 2019 tax filing will be used. Note that payments are being distributed by the IRS in waves, so if someone you know has received theirs but you haven't yet, it is not a cause for concern.
