You will be receiving a letter in the mail from the IRS, but what will it mean?

Y’all, we are in unprecedented times, here. We just have to hold on tight, and roll with it.

We learned that the IRS started sending out stimulus checks on April 11th, but not EVERYONE who is supposed to get a check received one that day.

We know they are staggering the checks, which means it could be a bit before you see any money.

What IS going to happen though, 15 days AFTER you receive your money, the IRS is going to send you a letter.

This letter isn’t anything to freak out over, or be worried about.

It is simply a letter that tells you:

  • When you should have received your money
  • How you should have received your money (check or direct deposit)
  • And it will provide information on how to report it if you DIDN’T receive money

For security reasons, the IRS plans to mail a letter about the economic impact payment to the taxpayer’s last known address within 15 days after the payment is paid. The letter will provide information on how the payment was made and how to report any failure to receive the payment. If a taxpayer is unsure they’re receiving a legitimate letter, the IRS urges taxpayers to visit first to protect against scam artists.


Basically, it is just to ensure that you actually received the money they sent out.

The IRS also wants to MAKE SURE that you don’t get caught up in any scams regarding your stimulus money.

Remember, the IRS will not call, text you, email you or contact you on social media asking for personal or bank account information – even related to the economic impact payments. Also, watch out for emails with attachments or links claiming to have special information about economic impact payments or refunds.

So to recap: Watch for your money, Then watch for the letter, And don’t fall for scams.

Now, go spend that money wisely.
