    Economic Impact Payment Update

    IRS Error in Issuance of Economic Impact Payments

    Connexus has learned that the IRS made an error in the issuance of 15-20 million Economic Impact Payments (EIPs). As a result, the IRS “Get My Payment” tool may show your payment has processed but it may not have been deposited into your Connexus account.

    While Connexus does not have access to information about your eligibility for receiving a payment, your payment amount, or the date you might receive it, here is a summary of the most current information we have:

    • An IRS error has caused 15-20 million EIPs to be sent to tax preparers instead of individuals
    • The IRS “Get My Payment” tool, designed to help track the status and dispersal of payments, may not be providing accurate information
    • For some individuals, the tool may indicate that their payment has been processed, but they may not see the payment deposited into their account because it was sent to their tax preparer by mistake
    • Other individuals are receiving a “Payment Status Not Available” error when using the tool
    • The IRS has not yet indicated if they plan to reverse payments or what course of action they will take to resolve the payment errors
    • The best course of action at this time is to contact your tax preparer to learn if the IRS erroneously sent them your payment

    While Connexus does not have access to the status of your payment, we are closely monitoring the situation and will continue to provide updates as soon as they become available. Please note that Connexus has processed all EIPs received to date and they have been deposited into the account number provided by the IRS.

    How to Track Your Payment

    1. Use the IRS Get May Payment tool to see the status of your payment
    2. If the tool shows your payment has processed but you do not see it deposited in your account, the best course of action at this time is to contact your tax preparer to learn if the IRS erroneously sent them your payment.

    FAQs: Economic Impact Payment

    The “Get My Payment” tool on the IRS website shows my payment has processed. Why do I not see it deposited in my Connexus account?2021-01-05T15:35:55-06:00

    Connexus has learned that the IRS made an error in the issuance of 15-20 million Economic Impact Payments (EIPs). As a result, while the IRS “Get My Payment” tool may show your payment has processed, it may not have been deposited into your Connexus account. The best course of action at this time is to contact your tax preparer to learn if the IRS erroneously sent them your payment.

    What is an Economic Impact Payment and how might it affect me?2020-12-31T08:42:36-06:00

    On Dec. 29, 2020, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Treasury Department began delivering a second round of Economic Impact Payments to millions of Americans as part of the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021. These payments are designed to provide support to citizens facing financial hardship due to the COVID crisis in the U.S., and are a follow-up to the first round of payments sent back in April under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act of 2020, also known as the CARES Act.

    Am I eligible to receive a second Economic Impact Payment? If so, how much will I receive?2020-12-31T08:50:50-06:00

    Connexus does not have access to information about your eligibility for an Economic Impact Payment. However, according to the IRS, “Generally, U.S. citizens and resident aliens who are not eligible to be claimed as a

    dependent on someone else’s income tax return are eligible for this second payment.” For more information about your eligibility and the amount you may receive, please review the FAQs provided by the IRS here.

    If eligible, will my second Economic Impact Payment be directly deposited into my Connexus account?2020-12-31T08:48:03-06:00

    The IRS will use the data already in its system to send the second payments. Taxpayers with direct deposit information on file will receive their payment via direct deposit into the account they have on file. Therefore, if your Connexus account is the account you have on file with the IRS (into which you have previously received your tax refunds), you should expect to see your second payment deposited directly into your Connexus account.

    Those without current direct deposit information on file with the IRS will receive their payment as a check or debit card in the mail.

    What is the status of my Economic Impact Payment and when can I expect it to arrive?2020-12-31T08:49:58-06:00

    The IRS and Treasury Department began delivering the second round of payments on Dec. 29, 2020. Connexus does not have access to the status of your payment until it is deposited into your account. However, you can check the status of both your first and second payments by using the IRS Get My Payment tool. The tool is currently being updated with new information, but the IRS anticipates it will be live again and available for use by taxpayers the first week of January.
