Stimulus check deadline approaching, what you need to know

OCEAN CITY, Md. – If you haven’t received your stimulus check, you’ve got less than a week to secure that money before it’s too late. Officially, you have until September 30th to fill out all of your previous tax information in order to receive that check. But if you miss that deadline, instead of that money going to your bank account, it’ll be credited instead, and you’ll be able to use that credit for your taxes next year. This is why accountants say if you need that money now, go online and put your information in now or you may miss out.

“The sooner the better because of the volume of processing. The process will be to visit IRS.gov click on the economic impact payment status and then you will be guided through the website,” said CPA for CG Accounting Group LLC, Phillip Cheung.
