The third round of stimulus checks has been rolled out by the IRS and the Department of Treasury. Those who qualified for the first and second stimulus checks are most likely to qualify for also the third ones. If you’ve seen IRS Treas 310 or TaxEIP3 on your bank transactions, know that it was your stimulus payment.
If the IRS doesn’t have your payment information, you will still get a stimulus payment but won’t be deposited into your bank account. Instead, you will get an EIP card or a check. An EIP card is a debit card that contains the funds and can only be delivered to you just like the check.
I haven’t received my stimulus check/debit card yet
If you haven’t gotten your stimulus yet, you first need to look at how you’re going to receive it. If you will get it direct deposited into your bank account, the chances of it being sent on March 17th is very high. Most taxpayers will receive their stimulus payments after this date but those who are expecting a check or EIP card will have to wait a bit longer. The EIP debit cards are expected to roll out first towards the end of March while paper checks have been already sent.
Track EIP3 status
The only way to track EIP3 or any other Economic Impact Payments for that matter is using the Get My Payment online tool. This tool will display important things about your stimulus check such as when it was sent or deposited. This will give you a rough estimate of when you will receive your Economic Impact Payment. If the status of your EIP3 is showing as not available when you track it, you probably don’t qualify for one. If you don’t know the eligibility requirements for Economic Impact Payments, you can read our article on the income thresholds for EIP3.
