If you're wondering where your stimulus check has gone, the first step is to check the IRS's "Get My Payment" online tool.
The site tracks where your check is in its journey to your bank account, and how much you will receive.
Thanks to the online tool, you can view a current update on the tax returns, including balances owed as well as a payment history and both scheduled and pending payments.
The IRS states on the site that payments are still in process, and that "If you haven't received a payment yet, it doesn't mean you won't."
If you're waiting on your check, it is important to verify that the IRS has your correct information on hand, including your bank account and direct deposit information.3Biden has said he supports expanding the child tax creditCredit: The Mega Agency
If you are missing cash from the first two stimulus rounds, then you should submit a Recovery Rebate Credit form.
The Recovery Rebate Credit section on the IRS website offers a comprehensive, step-by-step guide on how to submit for the tax credit.
You will be able to claim missing money from the previous $1,200 and $600 stimulus relief programs.
The IRS is sending out the checks in the form of direct deposits, paper checks sent through snail mail, and credit cards.3Americans can track their checks with the 'Get My Payment' online toolCredit: Getty
You should receive a letter of confirmation from the IRS about 15 days after the payment has been deposited.
Make sure to check also if you are in line to benefit from Biden's child tax credit, which will give eligible families up to $3,600 per child for the 2021 tax year.
Many Americans are also set to receive plus-up payments if their income dropped last year compared to 2019 or if a dependent has been added to their tax return.
CBS reports that 1.1million plus-up payments, worth more than $2.5billion, have been sent out as part of Biden's American Rescue Plan.
While the IRS continues its stimulus check distribution process, calls are growing for Biden to send out a fourth stimulus payment.Most read in NewsGRIM FEARMaddie 'was killed hours after vanishing & body will be found in Portugal woods'CANDID KAMFlustered Kamala SNAPS at reporter when asked when she will visit MexicoGraphic WarningLASHED OUTBirthday girl gets entire EYELID torn off by chihuahua while getting lashes doneMEGAHACKHackers steal 26m logins for Facebook, Apple & more with virus that takes your picREGULAR JOEOff-duty Biden dresses down in running shoes at G7 bar - but only has a CokeROLL HORRORVid shows trooper FLIP pregnant woman's car for going 14mph over the limit
