IRS Sending Refunds: Check Your Bank Account NOW


Did you receive some unexpected money in your account?

No, it’s not the fourth stimulus check. It’s the Internal Revenue Service that’s distributing refund payments to taxpayers who overpaid their taxes on 2020 unemployment.

Even though IRS hasn’t confirmed this officially, it’s the social media platform where many users have shared their tax transcript with the date of August 18.

Taxpayers Sharing their Joy on Social Media

Reddit users received the refund in her account & expressed their happiness on social media:

When asked, a source familiar with IRS confirmed a batch of payments was due to be delivered this week.

So, if you receive any payment via direct deposits, don’t be surprised as this is due for a long time.

Ever since the American Rescue Plan came to effect in March 2021, IRS is working to adjust approx. 13 million tax returns.

However, not every adjustment will come in favor of a refund as the federal law excluded up to $10,200 in 2020 unemployment compensation from taxable income.

Even last month, IRS had distributed around 8.7 million unemployment adjustments related refunds and as of now, the average refund size stands at $1,686.

That’s for now.

Were you expecting to receive a refund from the IRS?

And if you were, did the refund arrived in your account today?

All my bills are overdue including rent!.. This isn’t a good way to make mistakes when middle class citizens have worked all their life and since the pandemic it has been sporadic!. We need some kind of relief or WE THE PEOPLE will be homeless and on every damn Gov benefit just to survive. I’ve done all side jobs just to get by and it’s put my back up against the wall like being between a rock and a hard place. I do have job interviews and that’s a little bit of hope at least!..
    Please send relief.

  67. Rachel Walker says

    We filed our taxes in February and were set to get a refund of over $5000. TurboTax showed it as approved and has since then and we have NEVER RECEIVED IT. Talked to the IRS yesterday and we were told that the first 2 stimulus checks were deducted from our refund and that’s why we didn’t get it. First of all, that makes NO SENSE. The stimulus checks were said to be sent TO HELP. It wasn’t a choice given and the stimulus checks didn’t amount to what our return was set to be. Secondly, I was under the understanding that the most recent new child tax credit you were given to option to opt out b/c it will affect your tax refund NEXT YEAR. It’s complete bs. We worked and that’s OUR MONEY WE ARE OWED! We don’t receive unemployment or any government assistance. The lady we spoke to said their phones are blowing up b/c of this issue. And clearly from the comments we’re not alone. She also asked if we received the 3rd stimulus??? Ummm no.
