Rest assured, we are working around the clock to make sure that our communities and citizens receive the support they need. Keep reading for coronavirus updates and resources.Economic Impact PaymentsI worked in Congress to deliver swift financial support to families, workers, and seniors by sending relief checks directly to millions of Americans who make less than $99,000. These checks are meant to put money in your pocket now so you can put food on the table and help pay your most urgent needs, like prescription drug costs or rent. The IRS has begun sending these direct payments. Have you received your Economic Impact Payment check yet? Let me know but taking the survey below.
If you have not received your check you can verify the status of your payment or enter your direct deposit information using the IRS Get My Payment Tool.
For those who do not have to regularly file taxes you can enter your payment information into the IRS website to speed up your payment.
