Central Ohioans Can Now Track Their Stimulus Through IRS “Get My Payment” Website
COLUMBUS, OH—As 100 million Americans begin to receive their stimulus payments, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) is urging constituents of Ohio’s Third Congressional District to use the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) “Get My Payment” tool to check the status of their stimulus check from the American Rescue Plan, P.L. 117-2.
“The American Rescue Plan is all about meeting the magnitude of the moment for my constituents,” Beatty said. “Lives are on the line, and this historic package will put desperately needed dollars into families’ pockets.” She added, “The Biden-Harris Administration and Congressional Democrats pledged direct relief to the people and small businesses who need it most, and this landmark, life-changing piece of legislation makes good on that promise.”
- Check the Status of Your Economic Impact Payment (EIP): go online and get the latest update of your payment using the “Get My Payment” online portal at: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment.
- What to Expect: some Ohioans may have already received an EIP if their 2019 or 2020 taxes have been processed or they used the “non-filer portal” for previous payments and provided their bank account information to the IRS. Recipients of other federal government programs like Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Railroad Retirement Board, or Veterans Affairs benefits should expect to receive payment automatically as well. For Ohioans awaiting a paper check or debit card, some checks have been mailed, but most will get their paper checks or debit cards in the coming weeks.
- How Many Ohioans Qualify for EIP: according to the White House, more than 7.4 million adults and 2.8 million children in Ohio are eligible to receive payments of up to $1,400 per person through the American Rescue Plan. That means 89 percent of all adults and 87 percent of all children in the Buckeye State qualify.
- Who is Eligible for Payments: the American Rescue Plan includes EIPs of up to $1,400.
- Individuals earning up to $75,000 annually, heads of household earning up to $112,500 annually, and couples earning up to $150,000 annually will receive the full $1,400 per person (including dependents).
- Checks begin to phase out above the aforementioned income thresholds, with payments stopping for individuals earning $80,000 in annual income, heads of household at $120,000, and married couples at $160,000.
- This time around, adult dependents—such as college students and adults with disabilities—qualify for an EIP.
