January 15 is the deadline established by Congress – in the stimulus package bill that was approved in December – to deliver the second stimulus checks. In other words, after this Friday, the IRS and the United States Treasury will no longer be able to send the second stimulus checks, either by direct deposit or by mail.
Anyone who does not send the second stimulus check by this date will need to claim the money as a Refund Recovery Credit when filing your taxes this year, as reported by CNET.
This means that probably it will be months before you can see your second stimulus check if you haven’t received it by this FridaySince the sending of your money depends on the date you send your return and how quickly the IRS will process your tax return.
