Mine just worked;
I applied my 2019 refund to 2020 and couldn't get past the 2nd part of attempting to get the payment via direct deposit.



This evening it worked! I got this message;

What did you put in for your refund amount? The amount that you applied toward 2020?

Maybe I’ve missed this in all the messages above - has anybody living overseas gotten into the system yet? How did you enter your address? I’m trying by entering the number and street exactly as I did on the tax return but no luck as of now!

I put my information in yesterday afternoon (4/24). When I logged back in it said I am eligible and will get the payment by direct deposit.

YAH!! I am one of those who had a 2019 refund applied to my 2020 taxes. Today I did the information on the Get my Payment site and used 0 for my refund and got through and now it says I will get my stimulus payment direct deposit. So it appears that the IRS has fixed the 0 refund glitch!

For those that have given their bank information for direct deposit on get my payment, we are the next in line. Starting next week we should start seeing the direct deposits in our bank accounts. For those in this situation, most of us will get the DD by next Wednesday, and I think up until next Friday.

So next week we can look for it. With any luck, we should get our direct deposits next week for those who were able to give their direct deposit information by April 22. Of course I can't be sure, but for those who gave the IRS their bank information for DD after April 22, you might be getting a paper check.
Perhaps this article?

Behind a paywall for many, but it states:
Quote:
the IRS will send money over the next few days to people who recently provided their direct-deposit information.

These payments will likely go to two groups: One set is tax filers who successfully used the Internal Revenue Service website’s “Get My Payment” tool to add bank information by midday on April 22, according to the IRS. The other set is people who don’t file tax returns but who receive Social Security or Social Security disability benefits, according to the Treasury Department.

The payments could follow the pattern that occurred when the government sent the first round of direct deposits two weeks ago. Then, the Treasury notified banks of the coming payments on a Friday. Some people saw the money in their accounts within hours. Nearly all the payments had arrived by the following Wednesday. This time around, that would mean payments arriving by April 29.

That's the article. Of course you read one thing and something else happens and I wanted to have flexibility about what could happen. Thanks for the link.

I was able to enter my bank info almost two weeks ago and I still get a message saying I'm eligible and once a payment date is known it will be posted. I owed this year and filed back in Feb. Not sure of the methodology the IRS is using, but I haven't had the issues some are having and still no payment.

More importantly, it was way above what I expected based on my AGI for 2019. 2019 AGI (off which I think this was based) was just slightly more than the limit and the check was slightly less than the $2,400 for a couple. But using the online calculators it should have been significantly less. Anyone else come across this?
Did the timing of your paper check comply with the table published earlier in this thread? Not to be too nosey, but what date does that table say for you AGI?

I was also one of the people who applied 2019 refund to 2020 (never will do that again!)

It worked today to enter zero for the refund amount for 2019.

Thanks for checking on that, I had given up trying!

DS entered his bank info shortly after portal went live, still has not shown up. They do not seem to provide any information on when one can anticipate receiving it.

Great! Thanks much folks!

I was finally able to successfully enter in DF’s bank info and they said his check will be direct deposited.

Trying figure out the time schedule for us late direct deposit info providers that didn't get a working website before April 22...

According to the article in the WSJ, quoting a spokesman for Republicans on the House Ways and Means committee on what they have supposedly been informed of by the IRS (whew!)...

The data is gathered weekly and sent on the next Weds to the Bureau of the Fiscal Service which then makes the payments by the following Weds.

So for whatever all that is worth, I think maybe by May 6th, if the stars align.

Hmmm. Did not work for my DMIL. Her 2018 return had no tax due and no refund. But not because she applied a refund to a subsequent year. Her AGI was below the standard deduction, so zero taxable income. Not sure why that would make a difference. It's the same result: refund = 0.

I tried entering zero refund and also zero amount due. Both resulted in the error message that the information does not match our records. Yesterday, the exact same input gave the "technical difficulties" error message. So something changed. But now I'm locked out for 24 hours, so I guess I'll try again tomorrow. This is getting really old.

Zero worked today for me, but no feedback on exactlywhen the money would be deposited.

This was such a basic programming error that I wonder where they are getting their coders or acceptance testers from. A halfway intelligent teenager who knew a bit about taxes would have been able to figure out the additional logic.

Well, DF’s banking information was accepted today, but no info on timing. I figure I can check back later in a few days and will perhaps get more specific status.
