Why am I getting "Payment Status Not Available"? (updated April 17, 2020)

The Get My Payment application will return "Payment Status Not Available" for several reasons, including:

  • You are required to file a tax return, but:We haven't finished processing your 2019 returnThe application doesn't yet have your data; we’re working on adding more data to allow more people to use it.
  • You don't usually file a return, and:You used Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here but we haven’t processed your entry yetYou receive an SSA or RRB Form 1099 or SSI or VA benefits; information has not been loaded onto our systems yet for people who don’t normally file a tax return.
  • You’re not eligible for a payment (see Eligibility).

We update Get My Payment data once per day, overnight so there is no need to check more often. If you are eligible for a payment and have provided your information either through a recent tax return or the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here application, please check back for updates.
