How will I be issued my stimulus check, and can I update my direct deposit information?

The IRS has issued the first few batches of payments via direct deposit and has also begun delivering checks through the mail for individuals who do not have direct deposit information on file. If you have not received your stimulus payment and would like to update your direct deposit information, you can do so on the IRS’ Get My Payment tool.If you used a tax service to obtain an advance tax refund or decided to deduct the tax preparation fee from your tax refund, the IRS may have an issue processing your refund and it may be delayed while theIRS prepares to issue a check via mail. This leaves several possibilities of where your stimulus check may be:-You have not provided a direct deposit and your check has/will be sent to the last address on file with either the IRS or USPS.-The direct deposit information the IRS has on file is incorrect and payment was sent to the wrongaccount.-Your 2019 tax return is awaiting processing to determine eligibility and will be paid in the form most recently provided (direct deposit or check).
