The Biden government issued a third wave of $1,400 stimulus cheques to Americans in April of last year.

The IRS processed four million payments, and millions around the world have gotten their checks.

There is a means to track it for the unfortunate few.

How to Monitor Your IRS Stimulus Check of $1,400

To begin, you must first log in to the IRS’s Get My Payment Tool.

You can use this to find out only when your check was mailed, how much that is worth, and how it’ll be paid.

You’ll need your social security number or ITIN to sign up.

You’ll need your social security number or ITIN to sign up. Your date of birth and address are also required.

The Get My Payment Tool should send you one of two notifications when you submit your information.

The first one is “Payment Status,” which indicates that your check has been accepted. It will specify the payment date as well as the method of payment.

The next option is “Payment Status Not Available,” which suggests you weren’t eligible or the IRS was unable to process your payment for whatever reason.

You can file a Recovery Rebate Credit claim if you’re told your money isn’t available.

To do so, you’ll need to file a tax return for the year 2020. Depending on the info you supply on your tax return, this credit will determine your eligibility and the amount you are entitled to.

The IRS did not get enough information to give you a payment if you receive the message “Need More Information.”

A Recovery Rebate Credit is also required.

“Please Try Again Later” signifies you’ve been locked out for entering inaccurate information or attempting to log in more than 5 times in 24 hours.

You’ll need to request a Payment Trace if you’re told you were shipped the check but haven’t received it.

Call the IRS at 800-919-9835 to file a Payment Trace, or fill out Form 3911 and mail it in.
