Stimulus Payments

We understand that we are facing an unprecedented time of uncertainty and you have questions regarding the timing of your stimulus. Unfortunately, we do not have any more information than you do regarding the timing or the IRS tools.

Some points to consider:

  • The news reports stating that using a tax service is slowing down your stimulus payment are referencing preparation services that process Refund Advance Loans or take your preparation fee out of your refund. We do not offer these two options due to the requirement that a third party be involved in receiving your refund. All information that we transmit to the IRS is your bank info as provided and verified by you.
  • The IRS is processing things as quickly as they can. In the past 6 weeks they have had to deal with several HUGE pieces of legislation that required them to very quickly create new systems, technical corrections, procedures, and reset their archaic system to extend due dates. All while processing tax returns and being almost completely shut down due to COVID-19 work from home mandate.
  • Within 14 days of all distributions, a letter will be sent to the address on record verifying the amount and method of the payment. There will also be information on this notice on how to resolve any issues with the payment.
  • All eligible for the payment will receive it, the payments will be disbursed throughout 2020 and be available on your 2020 return if you are newly eligible.
  • The Social Security Administration will be issuing the stimulus payments to those who are receiving benefits into the same account their benefits are direct deposited.


Please continue to check Get My Payment once per day for more updated information. If you get the dreaded Payment Status Not Available at This Time, consider this quote from the verge website; “But while the world is full of nerve-wracking uncertainties, (the IRS) at least give(s) us the solace of a well-composed error page.”

The Saye & Associates Team


For the health of our employees and clients, we will no longer be taking in-person appointments of any kind. Due to staff being home with their children, we are also switching our phone system over to voice mail only. All calls will be returned within 1 business day. All electronic forms of communication are still available.

We are continuing to work our normal business hours and provide the best personalized service available. We appreciate your understanding! 


Did you know that we have options for filing your taxes without leaving your house?

If you are concerned about being out and about and would prefer to communicate with us via secure web portal, email, and telephone we already have those options in place. Please give the office a call and we will be happy to make arrangements that meet your needs.
