With Washington lawmakers moving inamong the daily news around , it can be challenging to focus on over and over again in the country’s capital in front of another and that it can come with it.
After weeks of stopped calls, there are some signs that the two sides are thumbs closer, before. “I want to see people get money,” President Donald Trump said during a news conference last week. “We should have an agreement. People should get help.”
So, what happens now and what are the biggest disclosures about awho you really need to know? We tell you. (This story is updated frequently.)
The new stimulus control is desirable but not complete
Stimulus control is not a clear deal, and right now its fate is linked to it, which is inserted , or to an executive order, as Trump indicated in early September, but which has not evolved since. Another direct payment has strong two-party support.
“It is very important that we have stimulus that helps those areas of the economy that need support,” Finance Minister Steven Mnuchin said on September 14. “I have said [House Speaker Nancy Pelosi] I am available at any time to negotiate, no terms, he said.
2. The IRS can send a second check faster than last time
It took the federal government about two and a half weeks to sendto eligible recipients. Mnuchin has said he could send them much faster this time, once a deal is inked.
“I was able to get 50 million payments really fast” and start making payments a week after a bill is signed, Mnuchin said in August.

5. How your stimulus money arrives is important
To get financial relief money out to eligible Americans as quickly as possible, the IRS and the Treasury Department took several approaches that included direct deposit, physical checks, and. According to the latest figures from the Ministry of Finance (in June), this is how the almost 160 million payments are broken down:
- Direct deposit: 75% or 120 million
- Paper control: 22% or 35 million
- Prepaid EIP debit card: 3% or 4 million
The IRS continues to urge people to do soto receive payments directly to their bank account, that number can be even higher. It is expected that you get your money the fastest with direct deposit, followed by the check and then the EIP card. The IRS automatically selects the payment method, but will likely reopen its portal if you have not already done so.
