Stimulus 3 deposit already!

Barely 24 hours since the president signed the relief bill and the IRS has already deposited the money in our account. Iím stunned.

No deposit in ours yet...I feel left out! (maybe because we live in Texas)

Got a check last time. Expect one this time.

Checked the website: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment

Apparently down for repairs.

Too bad the U.S. Treasury doesn't have a website where one can go in and pull your own "Stim" Check. That would make it easier for future planned distributions.

This proves that the IRS can be efficient. I thought that was impossible.

We won’t get one this time. Shoulda waited to file 2020 taxes, dang it!
We qualified and received the other two payments, but likely not #3 due to a Roth conversion last year moving our income above the threshold.

Be aware, AFAIK, the ‘phaseout’ range is much smaller with this 3rd one. MFJ phaseout from $150-160k, hard line cut off ($0 payment) over $160k.

We could probably get the payment with next year’s return if we choose not to convert again this year. But I think the benefits of Roth conversion (at current historically low tax rates) will far outweigh the benefit of EIP #3.

I just checked and while we did not get the stimulus deposit we did get the tax refund on March 3rd. Not bad.

They're not that efficient. DW and I still have not received our 2nd stimulus check, from January. Got the first one as a direct deposit, but the second one never showed up. Guess we will have to claim it as a rebate on our taxes.

Computer systems are efficient; the IRS?

DW and I got the deposit today. Don't need it but it will take it given we have to pay for it. Times over.

The IRS does not have DD authority so they will send a check/credit card. We received a notification from them yesterday that it was on the way. It was indeed significantly reduced from last time, and we have not filed 2020 yet so it is just the faster phasing out.

Stimulus checks do not come from the IRS. They come from the Treasury Department.

Well, the notation on each of my stimulus deposits say ďIRS TreasĒ, so weíre both correct.

Actually, the IRS is a bureau of the Treasury Department.

I don't think I'm getting a stimulus deposit this time. My AGI was too high.

Oh well! Having a higher income is not a bad thing when you think about it.
