Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Let's get straight to it: When will your relief check be in the mail?

Kyle Pomerleau, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, says:

"It really depends on what information the IRS has on you."

Why? That's because the infusion of cash will be distributed by the IRS. So Pomerleau says than means first in line will be anyone who has previously received tax refunds via direct deposit.

He estimates the earliest those payments will go out is 3 to 4 weeks after the package is approved. But keep in mind there are income limits on who qualifies.
