Taxpayers to receive catch-up Economic Impact Payments

Updated: Nov 18, 2020

Great news for individuals whose portion of their stimulus check was diverted to pay their spouse's past-due child support. Those who submitted Form 8379, Injured Spouse Allocation, are due to be issued catch-up payments early to mid September.

Individuals who did not file Form 8379 do not need to take any action. Although the IRS does not yet have a time frame it will automatically issue the portion of the economic impact payment that was applied to the other spouse's debt at a later date.

Taxpayers who are affected can go the Get My Payment tool available at

The Economic Payment Information Center at has additional information, see the Receiving My Payment section in the FAQ's.
