You’re on the IRS’s Get My Payment website. You’ve entered all the information the government asks for. But the site returns a message that reads “Payment Status #2 - Not Available.” What does that mean?
The IRS is in the process of issuing a second stimulus payment, up to $600 per person.
While many have already gotten their payment, those receiving the “not available” message will have to wait until they file their taxes. It doesn’t matter if the first payment went through last year.
The IRS said that if there is an issue with the direct deposit payment, the agency will not be able to reissue and mail checks.
Some taxpayers say that waiting will take too long.
WTVD reported that some of its viewers in Raleigh, North Carolina, have complained that the money is needed now and that waiting adds to financial hardships.
