It's not often that you get to hack the IRS and get away with it but many people are trying to get an update as to where their stimulus checks are and keep running into an error message when logging into the IRS website.
Many folks keep getting a "payment status not available" error when trying to find out the status of their IRS coronavirus stimulus check online. Well, someone figured out a way around this message and it really does work. Enter your street address in all caps.
No, really. The IRS website had a big update this week, so it's possible the site only just ported over your information and will let you log in now without having to shout at it. You can try typing out your street address the normal way. But if that doesn't work, many people have found that entering their street address in all capital letters was the key to getting in and being able to enter their bank account information in order to have their stimulus funds deposited electronically instead of waiting for a check in the mail.
