Second Stimulus Check problem
Posted by JohnnyK on Friday, January 22, 2021 1:01 PM

When I enter the requested information at "Get My Payment" I get the following response: Payment Status Not Available. Does anyone have this problem? 

It seems that the above response means that I will not be getting a check or direct deposit. Instead, I will get a "credit" when I file my tax return. That stinks.

When I checked, mine was scheduled to be sent on the 6th, and still hasn't arrived. 

 

Oh yeah, still waiting on tax refund from 2019 return.

Did you receive the first payment last year? The requirements haven't changed so if you got the first you should be receiving the second. My first payment was direct deposited but after receiving nothing for the second I checked the get my payment site and it said they were mailing me a check on Jan. 6. Why the change it didn't say but the check finally arrived on Wednesday.

I paid $7.75 For Priority Mail 2 day service from Central Fl to St. Louis and took almost 2 weeks to get there. Thank God for the tracking number showing the delay, WTF?? 

We also had a credit card statement arrive 2 days after the due date!! Contacted the credit card company and the late fee was removed and told I was one of many  customers reporting the same 2 day lag.
If your check is coming by mail sit and wait, it will eventually arrive.

Mine says check mailed out on Jan 6th even though the first one was sent by direct deposit almost immediately,since it's the 22nd already,it's probably not coming,so I guesss I will talk to my tax lady about getting me my credit.Unless it somehow shows up.

When I go to Get My Payment, there is no information regarding payment dates. All I get is "Payment Status Not Available".  Yes, I did get the first stimulus payment.

Got you beat on this one GH lol. Last tax year I sent my Income Tax papers to my tax lady in Ft lauderdale, 4 hours driving time from Central Florida. Sent 2 Day Priority Mail with tracking. It went from Orlando, to Miami, to San Juan Puerto Rico, back to Miami then  to Ft. Lauderdale, total of 5 days! This tax season I will be using Fed Ex.Confused

My sympathies to those of you who have suffered financially from the pandemic. I hope these payments help you out.

Ahoy JohnnyK. On the IRS website, the IRS says that if you got a direct deposit last year, you may get a check this year; and if you got a check last year, you may get a direct deposit this year. If they're going to mail you either a check, or as I got last year, a prepaid debit card, it will be in the mail to you on or before January 31st. If you don't get Stimulus 2, you can complete line 30 on your 1040 tax return. This is called the Recovery Rebate Credit. You tell them on line 30 if you didn't get your Stimulus 1 (last year) or Stimulus 2 (early this year). The IRS looks at only the information on your 2020 tax return and they compare it to any Stimulus payment you already got (they look at SSN's). If you didn't get one or the other, you'll get it as part of your 2020 tax refund. When they did the original mailings in January, they used only the information provide on your 2019 tax return. When they did the 2019 (Stimulus 1) they looked at your 2019 tax return if they had it. If they didn't have it, they looked at your 2018 tax return. That's a basic run-down of the situation. I think the way they determine direct deposit vs a check is that they have an old guy in the back room doing paper, rock, scissors to decide how to send it.

As Strongeagle said, some people are getting them in the form of a debit card. A friend of mine just recieved hers as such. That is a problem for her because she is disabled and can't go out to buy things. Anyway... we are hearing that people are tossing the cards in the garbage thinking it's junk mail. Be careful.

As for me, I have not received mine yet either.

Both payments were direct deposits into my account. Wonder what the reasoning is for sending out checks/debit cards to those set up for direct deposit? As far as I’m aware USPS is still somewhat recovering from Christmas in some areas.

Got mine via direct deposit while people were still on the news, pointing fingers at each other for being the sole reason the payments weren't going out.  So did other people I know in Colorado.  I guess some IRS regions are just more efficient than others at getting their job done.

Not the stimulus, but just got a letter from IRS....still waiting on refund, but get to include $17 and change on my 2020 return for the interest on what I haven't gotten yet.  Site says still processing...

You have to have a sense of humor when dealing with them.

DANGER WILL  ROBINSON!!!!!

Tojo Don't get a Craftsman washer, pure junk. Mine broke after a few minutes of operation. Took it back to Lowe's and was told several had been returned having the same or other issues. Went to Home Depot and got me a 3000 psi Riobi with a Honda engine and it does a fantastic job.

I'll second a Honda.  Their stuff is first rate.  Never a problem with ours.

GH the Craftsman has a Honda engine too but my problem was with the cooling valve that is supposed to open at a preset temp to let hot water out. It got stuck open and leaked water big time even when cold. The frame was very flimsy and had cheap thin plastic parts. 
The Riobi on the other hand is more solid and heavy having better tires, hose and a stronger thicker frame.
