Those awaiting the arrival of the third stimulus payment, which could start being deposited as soon as this weekend, will soon be able to track its status on the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) website.
Like the other two stimulus payments, you can track the status of yours using the IRS’s Get My Payment tool. However, the tool is not available yet for the American Rescue Plan (ARP) payments, as the IRS needs time to review the law’s tax provisions. Treasury officials said Friday evening the tool would be available starting Monday, March 15.
Those with direct deposit set up with the IRS will receive their payments first. After those deposits, the IRS will mail paper checks and pre-paid debit cards to everyone else who qualifies. The Get My Payment tool will tell users what type of payment they can expect.
