Millions of Americans have received their stimulus checks. In the first four weeks of the program, approximately 130 million individuals received stimulus payments worth more than $200 billion.
California received the largest payment followed by Texas. Though most taxpayers automatically receive their stimulus check, but if you think you are eligible and haven’t yet received your stimulus check, you may visit IRS Get My Payment FAQ. Here are state-by-state figures for Economic Impact Payments shared by CPA Practice Advisor.
“‘We are working hard to continue delivering these payments to Americans who need them,’ said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. ‘The vast majority of payments have been delivered in record time, and millions more are on the way every week. We encourage people to visit IRS.gov for the latest information, FAQs and updates on the payments.’
Overall, more than 150 million payments will be sent out, and millions of people who do not typically file a tax return are eligible to receive these payments. Payments are automatic for people who filed a tax return in 2018 or 2019, receive Social Security retirement, survivor or disability benefits (SSDI), Railroad Retirement benefits, as well as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Veterans Affairs beneficiaries who didn’t file a tax return in the last two years.
For those who don’t receive federal benefits and didn’t have a filing obligation in 2018 or 2019, the IRS continues to encourage them to visit the Non-Filer tool at www.IRS.gov so they can quickly register for Economic Impact Payments. People can continue to receive their payment throughout the year.
