The IRS has launched an online form for people who don’t usually file tax returns to request their coronavirus relief check via direct deposit.

Most people don’t need to do anything to receive their payment. If you filed a tax return for 2018 or 2019, or if you receive Social Security retirement or disability benefits or railroad retirement benefits, you don’t need to take action.

If your income was less than $12,200 in 2019 (or below $24,400 for couples filing jointly), or you didn’t have to file in 2019 for another reason, you should use this IRS website to submit your banking info.

The online form generates a Form 1040 for tax year 2019 and submits it to the IRS so it can complete your payment.

To complete the form you’ll need to create a free account and provide your date of birth, Social Security number and address along with your bank’s routing number and account information. If you want to receive the $500 payment per eligible child, you’ll also need to provide the Social Security number or Adoption Taxpayer Identification Number for each child.

If you prefer, you can also request to have your check mailed.

This IRS webpage has the details about the process. You’ll get an email confirming your submission was successful, which you’ll want to keep for your records until your payment arrives.

Relief payments are expected to begin to be made via direct deposit the week of April 13. If you want to update your mailing address or bank account details, this form is not for you. The IRS is launching a second tool next week that will allow you to update your payment info
