Thanks cathy. No change with a different browser.

Evidently, that error message is trending on Twitter. There's also a huge thread about it on reddit and some local news outlets are reporting it. Even a YouTube video. So hopefully the IRS is aware and will have it fixed soon.

Some of the comments I read are borderline panicky... people are counting on this money to pay rent and buy baby formula. And now this tool can't tell them when or if they'll see the money in their account.

Got the $1,200. No notice that it increased my share of the National debt by $6,000 or so.

I was able to add our bank account info this morning. We owed money on our 2019 taxes, so we would have gotten a check instead, if not for this option.

Don't let that stop you. I've been doing take out a little more than normal for us. I figure it's helping to not deplete the grocery store stash as much. Plus, we may now have disruptions in our food supply chains at the meat plants.

We very clearly qualify for the payment but not the automatic direct deposit. I'm just trying to provide my bank info so I don't have to wait for a check. I got the same error when checking for DMIL. Not sure this tool is ready for prime time yet.
I didn't get that error message. My first attempt to add my bank info did result in an error message, something generic about not being able to process at this time. I hit the back button in my browser and only had to re-enter my bank info. The other fields were still filled out. It went through fine the 2nd time. The site is probably getting slammed right now with so many people all trying to enter their bank info.

And it is very likely that I will die still owing my pro rata share of that debt, so I don't worry about it.

I'm assuming they used 2018's income and see a pending deposit from the IRS for exactly $1200 today. Any idea how (if they reduce by a percentage over $150,000; the deposit is exactly the amount of a 1 person stimulus? Seems a bit off. I would have expected $2400 (joint filing) times xx%=1954.50 or some such amount. Or will another $1200 be incoming in a day or so (if they used 2019 figures)?
It does appear that they used the 2018 tax return to calculate the payment amount, but it is weird that you got exactly $1200.

The good news is that if your 2020 income qualifies you for the full payment of $2400 for a married couple, then you'll recoup the remainder when you file your 2020 taxes.

I went in and added our bank account info since we owed money instead of getting a refund. I entered DH SSN since he is listed first on our joint return. Now I wonder if I need to do a separate entry for my SSN. I prefer that we do not get a paper check.

Until I saw this thread I hadnít realized that I would need to add bank account info...our payment was directly debited from our bank account.

I did the same, only entering DH's SSN. I don't think it's necessary to enter info the for other joint filer. From this link:

https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/econ...rmation-center

Quote:
U.S. residents will receive the Economic Impact Payment of $1,200 for individual or head of household filers, and $2,400 for married filing jointly if they are not a dependent of another taxpayer and have a work eligible Social Security number with adjusted gross income up to:
Amounts received are reduced depending on AGI, as shown on the site.
