I went to the website and put in all my info and see the following today:
+1

Based on 2018, am eligible for partial payment, but will not eligible due to Roth conversion in 2019. Getting the “payment status unavailable” message.

Pb4uski, where did you put in info for refund, as I don’t see a fill in form on the get my payment Site. We also had to pay the last several years so thought they would use the same bank info used to pay the IRS.

Thanks

No, but I did see a Bloomberg article about it. One person said they asked the IRS about needing to return the $ and got no answer back. I also have this problem.

They can't use an account that you previously authorized for direct debit only. It has to be specifically authorized for direct deposit.

On the Get My Payment site, you first enter your SSN, DoB, Address and ZIP. On the next screen, you will either get:
- a message such as the one you're seeing
- a screen asking for your tax return amounts and your bank info
- a Payment Status page

If you're stuck at the message, there's no way to move forward until the IRS resolves the issue on their side.

Tried again after my time out period. Same result. Tried entering my overpayment amount instead of 0, did not match their records. Tried 2018 return - did not match records. So the only thing that doesn't not match is the correct info from 2019 which isn't acceptable. Alrighty then.

I checked our status yesterday and found that our payment had been deposited into an account that is not ours. I know it is not ours because a) the IRS provided the last four digits of the account and it did not match any of our accounts and b) our sizable tax refund for this year was also directed to another account. We have never given the IRS any direct deposit info so we are looking at tax fraud. I discovered the refund problem about 2 weeks ago and have filed the paperwork to report it. I strongly suspected the stimulus money would face a similar fate and unfortunately I was correct.

I have contacted our congressman's local office and I am getting some help from them in resolving this problem, however it will likely take months.

I got my $100 stimulus check 2 days ago. They obviously used my 2018 tax return when I was single and had too much income for a single person. I was married last year and sent my 2019 tax return in mid-February. I had to send in a paper 1040 so I knew it was going to take longer than if I filed electronically. Well . . . it did take longer. No $2400 for me.

We filed earlier this year and owed money, and I guess they couldn't find the direct deposit info from *last* year, so had to fill out the form at irs.gov - no idea how long we'll have to wait...

Thanks.... a great explanation why I can't see what others are talking about.

If you're still married and have a similar AGI this year, you'll likely get the remaining $2300 as a tax credit on your 2020 return you file about a year from now.

Really? I hadn’t heard that but it sounds good. It would be even better if they catch it when they process my 2019 return.

Edit: Just saw this using a Google search

What if my recent income made me ineligible, but I anticipate being eligible because of a loss of income in 2020? Do I get a payment?

The plan does not help people in that circumstance now, but you may benefit once you file your 2020 taxes. That’s because the payment is technically an advance on a tax credit that is available for the entire year. So it will depend on how much you earn.

I added my banking info yesterday in the am. Took only a few minutes. It was accepted.



I checked the account this am. Nothing.



Would have thought it was all automated and would have been there today. Anyone know the timeline...


Thx

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)?
In another post, I saw a married couple got TWO $1200 deposits (albeit on the same day). I wonder if my wife's got waylaid someplace and it will just magically show up. Has anybody else gotten TWO deposits? If so, same day or different days? Note, our account IS a joint account. Thanks

Does someone have a link to add banking info. We just get the status message and no option to enter our info.

Thanks

I checked my status this morning. It just said they had my banking info and it showed the last 3 or 4 digits of the bank account for deposit and that I am eligible for payment. They don't have a date of deposit for me yet , but it is updated once a day. I guess I get it when they send it. Nothing else I can do now.

I couldn't even get into the website yesterday, but was able this morning. I'm in the same boat as you.

At least they have my account number correct (or the last 4 digits anyway).
