The IRS will reissue 5.2 million Economic Impact Payments beginning this week; 2.8 million of those payments will be distributed by ACH Direct Deposit and the remaining sent by check. Prior payments sent in error by the IRS to accounts at tax preparers, have prompted the reissuance of these payments as they were subsequently returned at the specific instruction of the IRS.

Additionally, the IRS Get My Payment portal will be update to reflect these reissued payments and is slated to be available on Jan. 29.
