What should consumers do if they are expecting a payment or check and it did not come?

During the first round of EIPs, the IRS’s “Get My Payment” portal allowed consumers to check the status of their payment. We expect the IRS to launch a similar initiative for this round, but it has not yet been confirmed.

Consumers should be wary of fraudsters who are already attempting to scam people out of their payment, and keep in mind that the government will not contact you by phone, text or email about this payment.
