Coronavirus financial assistance: how to set up and track a money transfer
Perhaps you will be able to quickly receive cash assistance from the state in connection with the coronavirus pandemic by directly crediting funds to your bank account. CNET talks about how and where to indicate your account for such a transfer, if you have not done so already, and how to track your payment.
Taxpayers who are eligible for federal assistance up to $ 1200 will begin receiving payments straight into their bank account this week if they can. If you are unable to receive an electronic transfer of funds according to last year's tax return, the IRS plans to open an online web application within a few days to help you get reimbursed faster.
If you do not have a direct deposit set up, your check will be mailed, which may take longer.
If you are one of the 80% of taxpayers who already receive tax refunds through direct deposit, you don't have to do anything at all: the IRS already has all the necessary information about your bank account, which is used to transfer funds. But if you're in the 20% receiving tax refunds in the mail - or not at all - the IRS said it will set up an online portal by April 17 so you can still receive the transfer. electronically to your bank account.
What data does the IRS need in order to make a direct transfer?
You will need to have the bank route number and account number on hand. You have several ways to find this information.
- Bank website. The site can display routing numbers and account numbers. For example, for Bank of America, log into your account, select the account you want to use, and then click on the Information & Services tab to see the numbers you want.
- Mobile application: if your bank has an application, it can show you your account and routing numbers. For example, in Bank of America's BofA application, click on the account you want to use, and then scroll to the bottom of the application window to see your clearly marked account and routing numbers.
- Printed receipt. At the bottom of the check, you will most likely see three sets of numbers: the first set of 9 digits is your route number. The second set of 8-12 digits is your account number. The third set - which you don't use to set up a direct deposit - is the check number.
