Washington, DC – Congressman Henry Cuellar released the following statement regarding information on economic impact payments distributed by the IRS:
“Millions of Americans are struggling, and this pandemic has forced many out of work – with the risk of losing their homes or being able to afford life’s necessities. These economic impact payments are critical in helping alleviate stress for working families across my district as well as the nation.
“While many Americans have already received their economic impact payments, there are still many anxiously awaiting theirs. The IRS is working diligently to ensure that payments of $600 per person and $600 for qualifying children and dependents are being distributed swiftly and accurately.
“I want to emphasize that there is no action required by eligible individuals on these second round of payments, it’s automatic. All payments are expected to be distributed by the end of January. Furthermore, please visit IRS.gov for the most current information on the second round of payments rather than calling the agency or your financial institution.
“We will get through this crisis together. I will continue working hard in Congress to ensure that you and your families have the resources you need to survive both the health and economic damages caused by this pandemic.”
