Be alert for phone scams. The Internal Revenue Service, Department of Treasury, or any other government agency will not contact you by phone, email or text to collect information for stimulus payment processing.
Only use irs.gov/coronavirus to submit information to the IRS – and never in response to a call, text, or email.
The IRS won’t tell you to deposit your stimulus check then send them money back because they paid you more than they owed you. That’s a fake check scam.
Third party companies cannot expedite your Stimulus Payment.
You don’t have to pay a fee to get your Stimulus Payment.
As of now, we are only aware of one communication a taxpayer will receive from the IRS. No later than 15 days after distributing a stimulus payment, the IRS is required to mail a notice to the taxpayer indicating the payment amount, method of payment, and a phone number to call if the taxpayer did not receive the payment. If you have been a victim or target of a stimulus payment scam you should report it immediately to the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov/complaint
