Track when your stimulus check will be deposited to your bank account

Stimulus payments are on the way and more than 80 million Americans have already had money direct deposited into their bank accounts.

But what if you owe money to the government?

The good news here is that money can’t be withheld for things like unpaid taxes or other government debts.

However, there is one major exception: child support.

The Treasury Department said anyone who owes child support will see that money taken out of their check, and there are no exceptions for financial hardship.

Private banks can also go after your check for things like overdraft fees or unpaid loans.

So if you want to check on the status of your payment, go to the Get My Payment page on the IRS website.
