Our payment is showing pending in the bank account this morning. I input bank details on Friday, 17th April.

One shocking thing - DH's full social security number is shown in the payment reference (not XXX'd out except for the last 4 digits.)

Thank goodness we have moved to online statements.

Ours posted this morning in pending. Nice, after I paid all CC bills.

Anyone planning to manipulate 2020 AGI to get the full stimulus ? I am (unless I choose to start SS early).

Iíll have to find a way to convert an IRA distribution into a rollover. Seems to be an issue for my credit union to take a check from me and treat it as a rollover.

For MFJ, there is a 5% phaseout of the stimulus tax credit starting at $150K AGI. So in this case, it ends at $150K + ($2900 / 5%) = $208K.

I had given similar inaccurate advice to someone else on another board. I got challenged/corrected, and so I went and read the text of the final bill. The above is my understanding of how the law is written.

This is something that is frequently not accurately nor carefully explained in news articles in the popular press.

@sergio, I think the best you can do is calculate the credit based on your 2020 situation with the higher AGI and the dependent, then claim any increase of that number over whatever stimulus check you received this year. There will be a line on the tax forms next year for this calculation. The government doesn't care what combination of AGI and dependents leads to the credit between 2019 and 2020; they just compare the overall number and give you whatever the math says is better.
Thanks - it's not the end of the world if we don't get the $500. We are in the "lucky" group as our 2020 AGI may be much higher than our 2019 AGI due to a one-off capital gain, but we still got $2900 deposited this morning that we don't need to return... if the sale of our company falls through we'll claim the $500 next year, or simply change my withholding so that I pay $500 less federal tax this year.

Payment cleared today $2400 from the IRS and I sent them $2100 so I have $300 to help stimulate the economy.

Nah... you were going to have to send them the $2100 either way so you're actually $2400 ahead.... -$2,100 vs +$300.

Leave it to a bean counter to spoil a good story.

Just got it today. DW already has plans. 14 cu yd of mulch for the main house and 12 tons of driveway gravel for the lakehouse. Labor supplied by me. No need for a gym membership and she has $$ left over for other things.

IRS owes me another $460. You can be assured I will stay below the cutoff next year to get it!

IRS is undoubtedly batch processing these payments overnight. It could have hit your account to late to be credited yesterday. Check again tomorrow.

Update on the family getting the check.....

MIL go hers in the mail last week. She files but owes zero and pays zero so the "get my payment" lookup form did not work for her (because of the verification questions based on how much she paid or owed).

DM go hers via direct deposit yesterday 4/30...We went to the form on day 1 and added her bank account info. She always owes the man every year.

DF & I get "Payment Status Not Available" we did not qualify in 2018 but did qualify in 2019. Online filed 3/24. We will need to wait.

20 something kids both got theirs via direct deposit on day 1

First time I think I've ever said this: "Very efficient and very fast and excellent job, US government!"

3 of my kids got their check. The one that needs it the most, of course, canít even get the site to identify her. She canít get past the first page of SS, DOB and address. She has correspondence from IRS and made sure sheís entering address exactly as they have it (pretty straightforward address). Comes back that they canít identify her. Then it locks her out. Anyone out there that can offer us help for her??

She filed by paper in mid Feb. Never received her refund. Site states they are working on it.

BTW, for people like this who just donít get their checks will there be a way on next years taxes to declare this? What do you think?

She is NOT happy!!!

If they don't get their checks this year and still qualify on 2020 taxes, then they should get the credit next year.

My deposit is somewhere in the Outer Darkness. But, my children got their money and they need it far more than I do.

Certainly thinking about it. Will be easier with the lower dividends paid out in 2020 and harvested tax losses.
