When will those who used the "IRS Portal" get their deposits?

    I've heard a few rumors, but can't verify them. The IRS site still does not give a "date" after using the portal.

    Does anyone have a timeline or a source that points to one?

    I have just seen it say it will take 'several days' to process and deposit your check, once they have your updated info provided via the portal. We do know they are updating their system once a day, and if you successfully used the portal that appears to mean they will begin the processing the day after you provide your info.

    Will update here once I come across exact timelines on this though. And anyone else please post here if and when the IRS makes this more clear.

    Ok. I did already submit my bank account info via the portal. I never should have had to, because I got a refund deposit in 2019 (for my 2018 taxes) and everyone assured me they had the info they needed. Can't find a single answer to why this turned out to be false.

    According to the Washington Post, the info on the Get My Payment tool is updated only once a day. So perhaps people will have to check back the next day to see if it gives them a date for when their check will be dispersed.

    I updated my info the same day the portal opened up because of filing with H&R Block and getting my funds on the Emerald Card. Says I qualify for a payment and that it will be updated daily. Has said this for 3 days now. Hopefully they will deposit by next week, but who knows.

    I also used hnr block for years. I filed in jan for 2019 taxes and received my refund on the emerald card. When I checked on the portal it had missing dd info so I updated it with my bank info. I did this wed at 6am it accepted my info but I still do not have a date of deposit. Are their stimulus payments being made today.. how long is this going to take. Do they send them only weekly or do they do them daily! Pls help..

    The link I just posted may help you "Help" the issue with HR Block has to do with the cards given and the fixed fee that gets deducted and/or captured during typical refund deposits from these preparers.

    Here's a good one. My wife filed and forgot one letter on her name wrong. IRS Portal shows money sent to bank but nothing has posted. Can't find info on wrong name entries anywhere. Payment processed and sent and now will be returned as we wait on paper check in freaking May. My car is broke down and my wife tells me how to drive her car every 20 seconds. I'm so happy I can't stand it. Signed broke and crying in beautiful Florida. Gotta go my wife's calling me to do something so I can be even more happy.

    I used the "Where's my payment" tool on Wednesday. I had to add my bank account info because I used TurboTax and had my refund put on a TurboTax prepaid card. Therefore, the direct deposit information was not available to the IRS.

    I did all that on Wednesday. Originally it said I was eligible for a payment and it would be deposited into the account I added. GREAT! Now when I go to the tool it says I'm locked out of website 😑 So, I have no idea what is going on!

    I did the exact same thing on Wednesday and I am also locked out of website.

    Great find Will. So here's the exert. This really does give clarity on this situation:

    Individuals can provide their direct deposit information by using one of the two IRS portals: (1) Get My Payment (for tax filers who did not provide direct deposit information on their 2018 or 2019 return) and (2) Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info (for individuals who are not required to file tax returns). Individuals who enter their direct deposit information into the portals by Thursday of a week reportedly will be paid the following week. Also, taxpayers expecting a tax refund for 2019 can provide their direct deposit information to the IRS by filing a 2019 federal income tax return if they have not already done so in lieu of using the Get My Payment portal.

    The highlighted sentence is the important one. So if you update your information by Thursday during the week, you should be paid the following week. So for everyone that used the portal to update their bank info on 4/15 or 4/16, you should get your stimulus sometime next week, even if you didn't get any confirmation.

    From reading that, if you update your info from Friday, 4/17 to Thursday 4/23, it will be deposited the week of 4/27 - 5/1. And so on and so on.

    But they will also start sending out paper checks the week of April 20th, so be sure to update before your check goes out if you would rather a direct deposit:

    Beginning the week of April 20, the IRS also will begin issuing paper checks on a weekly basis to individuals who have not provided direct deposit information but for whom IRS has a mailing address. Paper checks will be issued at a rate of about 5 million per week, which could take up to 20 weeks. The checks will be issued in reverse “adjusted gross income” order—starting with people with the lowest incomes first.

    You can also check the timetable of stimulus checks being mailed out on our Stimulus Timetable thread.

    My boyfriend added it to his chime card account and he got it the same day. As for me I added it to my bank and I haven’t received it yet it’s been 2 days.
