How can I receive a stimulus?

During the issuance of the 2020 stimulus checks, there were certain guidelines that needed to be met in order to qualify for these payments. One of the more common issues with not receiving is not having the correct checking information on file with the IRS since most payments were made through direct deposit. If you opted to have a paper check issued when receiving your tax refund, you will receive a paper check when the stimulus payment is issued. In that case, it’s very important to make sure you have the correct address on file. Another way that you could be prevented from receiving the stimulus is not having filed your 2019 and 2020 taxes. Even if you aren’t required to file taxes, it’s recommended to do so in order to make sure that everyone that’s eligible receives their stimulus payments. Those that filed single status and made over $75,000/year, filed as head of household and made over $112,500/year, and married couples that filed jointly and made over $150,000/year will not qualify for the stimulus payments.
