Good point. I would expect the number of checks to shrink as the income bands rise.

And the dollar amounts on those checks would also shrink, and the amount spent vs. saved from those checks would probably also shrink, so from the point of view of stimulating the economy the earlier checks are probably vastly more relevant.

I will note that the schedule posted here does not appear to be present on IRS.gov, but does appear in a Yahoo! Finance article with no authoritative cite. I also think the AGI bands being in $10K increments is fishy. So personally I suspect it is an unfounded rumor that is unlikely to be true.

I think it is more likely that the IRS will print as many checks as physically possible (I have heard 5M per week). The IRS has stated they will go in ascending AGI order.

Nice chart of check dates but where did it come from?

Stimulus direct deposits & checks - This is the thread. Don't start another.

I entered bank account info on the first day the IRS website was up and nothing has happened except to get that helpful "Payment Status Not Available" message.

Here's what the FAQ page says about this message:

"The Get My Payment application will return "Payment Status Not Available" for several reasons, including:
You are required to file a tax return, but:

We haven't finished processing your 2019 return

The application doesn't yet have your data; we’re working on adding more data to allow more people to use it."

We filed our 2019 return in March. The second reason they provide for the message appears a bit bizarre to me. Clearly the application does have my data or it wouldn't have told me I was eligible for a payment? And, well, I hope not a lot of people are going to use my data...

No, 0 refund still did not work for me.

I guess CaptTom didn’t try again because he got the notice of a check in the mail already scheduled.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/jimwang.../#56b0c0ed5438

I am also waiting for my check. I will find out if the schedule is accurate.

I see it says that the list of dates vs income is from an IRS internal memo viewed by the Washington Post. Nothing official about that. Another thing that is not clear is if MFJ earning 50k gets their check later than a single filer earning 40k.

"Payment Status Not Available" ?

tried checking my payment status on irs site today and several times last week (the page where you enter ssn, dob, street, zip), keep getting "Payment Status Not Available" message. Is this normal?

We file electronically for 2018, refund with direct deposit
didn't file 2019 yet
filed jointly with AGI under $120k. so I should be eligible.

Same here. Filed in 2018 and applied refund to 2019 taxes. Haven't filed in 2019 yet. I'm getting the same "Payment Status Not Available" message.

The portal still doesn't work if you received a refund but applied it to next year's taxes (if you put in the refund you would have received it says does not match records and if you put in zero for a refund it says technical difficulties).

Let us hope none of these programmers are the ones working on national defense systems.

Nah, they are all on loan from the Boeing spaceship program.

when will the physical checks go out?

I'm hoping for $1,200 for my dead relative...it would really help with estate expenses.

This is the exact problem I am having. I feel like I am being punished for letting the IRS keep my 2019 refund to put toward 2020. No good deed goes unpunished!

I get it everyday also. I just read on the internet last night that they are talking about a second round of checks. could be not true. If they are I wonder if I'll get the first one before they start sending out the second.

This app smells like a prototype pushed into production.
The last thing developers do is proper error handling. It's overlooked in the early development phase as you want to prove the happy path, later error cases are added and refined.
