More than 80 million Americans will receive payment via direct deposit by Wednesday from the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package, the Treasury Department said in a statement Monday.

The big picture: Americans began to receive their stimulus payments on Saturday, per the IRS. The Treasury said payment was being automatically issued to eligible 2019 or 2018 federal tax return filers who received a refund using direct deposit.

Zoom in: The IRS has launched a new web tool for those who do not regularly file tax returns to get their check more quickly.

  • Filling in the "non-filers" form enables those who meet this criteria to enter their bank details to be paid electronically if they don't want to wait for their check to be mailed.
  • The Free Fillable Forms tool will email the user that it's filing a Form 1040 to the IRS on their behalf or alert them to any errors that may be corrected so they can have their payment processed.

"This was the position the Republican Senate took in 2016 when there were almost 10 months to go before the election. That's the position the United States Senate must take today, and the election's only 46 days off.
