Where’s My EIP?

If you’re eligible for an Economic Impact Payment (EIP) but you haven’t yet received it, you may be wondering why. It could be because you haven’t filed your 2019 income tax return. Under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, tens of millions of EIPs have already been delivered. But the IRS says that if you have a filing requirement for 2018 or 2019, you must file to receive your EIP. Although the 2019 filing deadline has been postponed from April 15 to July 15, you may want to file sooner to get your EIP sooner. How do you know if you have a filing requirement? The IRS has created an Interactive Tax Assistant to help you find out.
