Make sure you have the following information so you can access the IRS Portal.

Social Security number (now do you know why we suggest a VPN?).
Date of Birth
What Will this new IRS tool help me to discover?
Type of Payment
Status of your payment
Scheduled Date you can expect the deposit into your bank acount
Or, scheduled date you can expect the check to mail.
Yes, you can ipdate eligible taxpayer’s bank account information. There is an exception to updating bank information on this IRS portal. If you were suppose to receive a check payment and it was already scheduled for delivery, you will not be able to update the information. Again, another good reason you want a VPN on your home and mobile devices.
