A potential data component third stimulus check coming soon? While there is no exact date yet, we do know Congress is working at a rapid pace - compared to second payment - to get President Joe's $ 1.9 trillion stimulus package approved. However, there is still has twists and turns that couldent slow down or get more complicated when you have more stimulus money, for a maximum of $ 1,400 per person .
Although you can get data much more money with the new raise payout - even the one that modify the formula to become more "targeted (here which may not be eligible ) - the date on which you might personally expect to receive a third stimulus payment is still a bit uncertain.

We also know that Democrats want a bill approved by M arch 14. And we know the details of the plan for Launch the stimulus plan in front of the Republican opposition for approval faster.
But the goal of March 14 is to get the bill passed is just one factor. Another is how long it can take for IRS to start calculating stimulus payments and a tThird is the payout group you belong to to receive it - this designation has already changed and could change again.

Timeline for Checking Potential Stimulus Measures: When Your Payment Could Come
If a stimulus bill is passed before March 14, we can make an educated guess at how much date on which IRS might start sending the first payments, depending on how quickly the IRS returned the previous check. Even so, many uncertainties remain.
For example, it is possible that negotiations will end in a weekine while politicians work to finalize the bill. If the Senate makes any changes, it would return to the House for a vote that could lead to delays - the deadline to reach March 14 is already tight for the pace of the legislation. Also, the IRS also handles tax returns , and it is unclear how the agency and new Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen were going to prioritize delivery of a third check and processing of tax returns.
We also expect the IRS to prioritize payment groups the same way it did with the first two checks: by groups we mean people who receive stimulus payments via direct deposit , like physical checks or on EIP Cards . Read on to see why your group might change and what you can do, if so. It could take weeks for the IRS to process each group's funds, so consider the possible dates below as a starting point.

This was largely true with the fir st two checks (there are always some exceptions) and would probably play the same the third time around. Direct transfer recipients generally get their stimulus money faster, as evidenced by the way the government handled the first two rounds of payments in March and December. But both times there were issues involving deposits to temporary accounts that have been rejected by banks.
The IRS told in January that some people who had received a physical check or The EIP card the first time can be paid by the other method the second time. And, anecdotally, we have heard of personnes who first received direct deposit payments and ultimately received an EIP card in the mail - not an electronic bank transfer - weeks after the IRS tool said the payment had been issued.
