Relief checks on the US government's stimulus package are expected to take about three weeks before the Americans receive them once the White House contract is signed. However, this may not be the case for all. according to an NBC News Report.
The U.S. Senate passed a $ 2 trillion stimulus package on Wednesday evening to protect the country from the economic chaos caused by the corona virus. The house is likely to vote on the bill on Friday, and President Donald Trump is expected to sign the bill.
The stimulus package involves sending checks for direct payments to Americans based on their income, with payments up to $ 1,200 made for people who earn less than $ 75,000 a year.
Facilitating checks will appear in about three weeks, according to the NBC, but it may take longer for those who don't have direct deposit information with the IRS.
This is because the checks that Americans receive are based on the information they provided in their recent tax returns. According to the NBC, those who haven't made a direct deposit in the past two years may have to wait longer to receive their check.
Individuals who have not provided the IRS with direct deposit information will receive a check at their "last known address", according to the report. The IRS has 15 days to inform them about the method and amount of the payment, NBC News reports. The notification is reported to include a phone number that the person can contact if they fail to receive the check.
If you have moved or changed your address since the last time you filed your taxes, it may be a wise decision to contact the IRS as soon as possible to ensure that the government has your latest information.
