Several of our friends got theirs yesterday, and as I keep seeing on television about how you can check on yours, I figured I had got nothing to loose.
The only thing I lost was time. We had e-filed our 2019 return, and have our social security go into the bank, as a direct deposit. If came up that they didn’t have a bank account on file.
I found the correct form to check. Typed in our social security numbers, dates of birth, address, and then got our tax return. No problems with the gross income. Then you either had to put in the amount you owed in taxes, or the amount of your refund. We pay taxes in England, so they go against the amount we owe here. We paid more money in England, so we didn’t owe any. I put zero in. It wouldn’t accept it. I went to the help area, and nothing helped me.
I guess it could be months before we get our checks in the mail. Luckily I am very careful with money, and never spend what I haven’t got. I pay our credit cards off, so we don’t need the money at this moment. This would be really hard for someone that really needed it straight away.
