On December 21, 2020, Congress authorized a coronavirus relief package to provide assistance to American consumers and businesses struggling as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. A provision of the law includes sending government payments to eligible Americans.
The Internal Revenue Service is the agency responsible for determining eligibility. For information on eligibility please visit the IRS website.
CHECK ON STATUS OF YOUR PAYMENT
If you’re eligible and filed taxes in 2019 (or 2018 if not yet filed for 2019) and included your bank routing and account number for payments or refunds, and this information has not changed, the IRS has the information it needs to send your payment electronically. Recipients will be mailed a check if the IRS does not have your information on file.
Here are several options to help you know when you have received your Economic Impact Payment if it will be deposited to your Horizon account electronically:
