Did you know that the US Postal Service will show you a picture of your IRSwhen it has been processed in the mail? This is a neat, easy and completely free way to see when your payment will come. Is there a catch? Not really, but you need to know that you are eligible for the stimulus check, at most $ 1,200. And it can help to try first to make sure it really arrives by mail.
Tracking your stimulus check through the US record is also convenient if you. One word of warning: If you would rather file with the IRS, you must do so by Wednesday, May 13 at 12 PM ET, otherwise a paper check is the only option.
Tracking your mail starts with a free US Postal Service app and a service called Informed Delivery, which can notify you when your check is about to arrive.
