Question about the stimulus payment. I just moved.


Assuming it happens that we all get a payment, how are they planning to do it?

I moved to my city 6 months ago for work and lived in a motel until I found an apartment. Just moved in yesterday. The problem is I used the address for the motel on my tax return this year. Since it's a business I can't have my mail forwarded to the new place. Asking them, the motel, to hold mail for me to pickup isn't an option.

My refund was direct deposited. So, any idea how the money would be sent, any advice to minimize a delay?

As always, thanks in advance

The money has not been approved yet. I believe they are using 2018 returns. It seems to me the easiest way to disperse the money would be direct deposit to people that got their tax return that way. That would probably handle the majority of eligible people, the rest would be more of a hassle and might take a while.

I know it hasn't been approved yet, that's why I said assuming it is.
