      2. Payment Status Not Available –

      If you receive this message, you were either not eligible, or eligible but we were unable to issue you an EIP 2 payment. You will need to claim any additional amount you may be entitled to on your 2020 tax return as the Recovery Rebate Credit.

      This is what I am getting.
      I filed for 2018 not 2019 received 1st stimulus via entering info. I believe the AGI from 2019 was used this time unlike last time when both 2018 & 2019 were used. I believe because I didn’t file for 2019 I have to wait and request 2nd stimulus on taxes.
      This may be the case for many of us. Thoughts?

        Where are you all seeing your 2021 transcripts???

        When I pull mine on the IRS site it only shows the the last few years up until 2020 even though I got the first stimulus.

        What am I missing??


          Im over it already. Even though 10 calendar days not including holiday n weekends will be the 27th, if im not mistaken, but Irs dropped the ball. This is ridiculous. Im hearing so many scenarios, at this done😤 I definitely spoke to an agent that clarified 10 calendar days FROM 13TH not including holiday n weekends, yet others said when they spoketo irs agent, they had NO IDEA what themeta prenote was. IM OVER IT..


            @Angel…not yet.
            At one point I heard the IRS “system was coming back online” on the 25th.
            Combine that with the IRS official statement that says they’ll have the stimulus out “later this month” and I’m hoping we’ll see it Monday. If not Monday throughout next week. That said, I’ll believe it when I see it at this point.


              10 calendar day my ass. No deposit today. Got the prenote on 1/13/21. Incredible.


                I don’t. Smh


                  Anyone have a deposit this morning?!


                    I have been following this thread for a few days. I also revived the pre-note but have yet to receive my refund. I just downloaded my transcript and it also says.. refund issued (600) 1-4-21, tax relief credit (-600) 1-18-21 but of course nothing as of yet has been deposited


                      @ keys did you really speak to irs representative


                        At this point I don’t even know if I should have my hopes up in getting this stimulus check a lot of people have received that meta tax EIP PRENOTE on their accounts but then some people have been calling the IRS agents and they are saying they don’t know what that is about and to be honest I don’t think they even know what is going on either this is so overwhelming epically not having answers if you will be able to pay for basic needs


                          So we not going to get our stimulus if irs dont know what’s the meta tax prenote


                            I too received a Meta Tax EipPre ore on Jan 13th but when I ask the lady with the IRS about it she didn’t seem to know what that was she said she wasn’t familiar with it.


                              Sorry! Played the 60 day game for over a year now and to be one of the “lucky” ones that get to also play the guessing game for a stimulus, the phone centers are told different things to say! Not that gullible anymore, i give! Done stressing spending everyday wondering… Just keep it!! Im out!


                                10 business days ????? The 27 ?? For those that have gotten a prenote deposit


                                  I called the irs today and they told me that don’t go by the transcript. Go by the gmp tool. They said all the transcript means is that you are eligible for the second stimulus.


                                    @ Mark that number doesn’t tell you if a card is on the way . It tells you to enter the card number .


                                      I looked on at my transcript and it indicates a credit again on 1/18/21. Fingers crossed




                                          Haven’t been able to get a hold of irs 10 business days ?


                                            @Henry I also read some post on this thread and people have said they have spoken wirh the IRS and if you see the Meta test deposit of 0 then your refund should be to you in 10 calendar days


                                              @Henry have you tried reaching out to them. I tried to Google information about it but didn’t see anything


                                                As someone else posted here, I downloaded my it’s transcript from for 2020 and it shows I was credited my stimulus on 1/4/2021. I did not receive anything. I got the meta tax prenote on 1/13/2021 and the transcript mentions I was credited again on 1/18/2021. Hopefully soon!


                                                  (Taxes y mas) a tax pre , just got a meta tax prenote $0.0 on 1/13/20 my first stimulus came in my bank account fine really fast this one nothing . Irs app status say the same thing hasn’t changed it says not available ( needs more information) and still working on this ) sucks because I really need the money I took a big pay cut almost 11,000 since COVID hit and have 3 daughters 4y 3y, n 10months one was born when COVID started plus only income in the house… hard


                                                    @Henry @Hh who did you use to file your taxes?


                                                      @Angel Thanks for the heads up. I got that email earlier as well.
                                                      Seems like there may be hope for us Taxact/prepaid folks.


                                                        Got a prenote meta tax $0
                                                        On the 1/13/21
                                                        No money yet 😢


                                                          Got the same prenote meta tax $0 on 1/13/21


                                                            @Je also check your emails. I received an email not to long ago from taxact stating they have received information from the IRS and I should have a deposit by 2/1. For some reason the email went to my promotional emails.


                                                              @Angel Good information, thank you!


                                                                @Je I used them but I have a greendot card vs netspend. I did not receive the test deposit either. I reached out to Republic Bank. They said some companies don’t show test deposits on the customer side of the account and gave me a number to call 18665811040 and then press star… if the following message said something about them the irs error then the IRS will be sending out a payment by the end of the month.

                                                                Brandy Crummer

                                                                  Meata made a deposit to my account buy it said 0.00 on the 13th

                                                                  Brandy Crummer

                                                                    I got the same thang on 13th. A deposit from them but it said 0.00


                                                                      Spoke with irs today apart of the 1/4 then 1/18. Was told 3 weeks from initial error. 1/18 being date that irs received are check back. 1/4 initial date of error. That being said I was told to expect between 1/18 and 1/25 the 4th plus 21 days.


                                                                        Anyone else file with taxact, have netspend and NOT get the “test deposit” on the 13th?


                                                                          I was able to speak with an IRS Rep earlier. She wasn’t familiar with the meta prenote but did mention the GMP saying it’s unavailable is incorrect…if you do look at the transcript and it says a date it’s because a payment was sent to a temp acct of a tax preparer. The IRS is waiting for funds from that bank to be sent back so they can send funds to intended recepiant correct checking acct. The Rep did say it’ll take up to 10 calendar days.


                                                                            I just got off the phone with the irs and the lady said she never heard of meta tax but I’m like you guys I wanna know what’s going on


                                                                              @Angel Not including weekends./


                                                                                Calendar! Calendar 📅 I made sure I asked because I’m like you guys These things make a huge difference these days it’s killing me


                                                                                  @keys calendar days or business days?


                                                                                    @Nene Calender days or business days?


                                                                                      It’s 10 calendar days just spoke to irs. Fingers crossed!!


                                                                                        @ amanda.. lol you are welcome..ive been doing the exact same! Lets see what happens!!


                                                                                          Well I have been reading everyone’s question/comments all morning and felt so relieved to see I wasn’t the only one that had this mysterious Meta note on 1/13 and no stimulus!

                                                                                          @keys..Thank you for sharing the info from the IRS as it gives me a little comfort instead of stressing and checking my empty account each day!



                                                                                            Youre welcome.we all are in same boat. If we can share any let see what happens🤞🏽


                                                                                              @keys. I also had that prenote in my account on the 13th and did not know what to do. So, Thank you so much for sharing the info it put my mind at ease now.


                                                                                                I got my first stimulus check direct deposited in May. I am eligible for this payment. My second payment status still says not available. Is there a chance I’ll still get this payment, or will I need to fill out this 1040 form for the tax credit when I file for 2020?
                                                                                                Getting the stimulus check via tax credit seems to defeat the purpose of getting money quickly into people’s hands who need it because of this health crisis.


                                                                                                  Just got off phone with irs..Representative stated if you recieved a meta prenote..we should be receiving something in 10 business days after the date the pre note was posted. Mines say the im assuming 10 “calender days” will be the 27th. Just sharing this info. I know everyone is waiting as well. She also stated that they extended the 15th deadline to end of month to get stimulus out..thats why date to file taxes are delayed..hope this helps!




                                                                                                      @Shanika in the same boat as you but the IRS delayed the start of tax season until the middle of Feb. I also saw on another thread that the TT isn’t correct and you should not go of off that. I wish it was correct


                                                                                                        Well, it’s the 19th yall and still NOTHING. I’ve been holding out to file my taxes because of this now I’m not waiting any longer this is crazy. I received my first one with no problem last year and now it’s a problem. nothing has changed with my information I got the same bank, address, and one child lol so what’s the hold-up? If my TT said the 18th then my money should have been in my account at midnight last night. SMH


                                                                                                          Shanay *** sorry


                                                                                                            Shanny, same issue with me. Transcript says 1/18/2021. Still nothing..


                                                                                                              My transcript said mine would be credited to my account 1/18/2021 and I still don’t see it :( does anyone know what this means ?


                                                                                                                Yes id like to register


                                                                                                                  I AGREE..THIS IS VERY FUSTRATING. I recieved metatax on 13th.woke up to nothing deposited. Nobody has answers. Irs dropped the ball this time around.


                                                                                                                    Received the metatax note on Jan 13th and still nothing has hit my account. This is the most frustrating thing ever.


                                                                                                                      Where is everyone going to see timelines for how long after test deposit of $0, it will be till actual deposit is made? I used last year and they said they have no information for me. My get my payment tool still says Not available. The test deposit of $0 was made by Meta Tax on 1/13/21. I am just trying to figure out when I can plan to have money for gas, so I can plan needed doctor visits.


                                                                                                                        I received metatax prenote on the 13th but still have nothing. Get my payment says status not available.


                                                                                                                          The get payment tool will not be update should til January 29th per irs website for ppl who have still not received their stimulus payment.


                                                                                                                            Thank you Sharon hopefully we get it this week .

                                                                                                                                  Oh, I forgot lol. Thank you for reminding me, Sharon.
                                                                                                                                  Hopefully, tomorrow I’m keeping my fingers crossed.


                                                                                                                                    Today is a holiday, so hopefully tomorrow Shanika. We will receive a deposit.


                                                                                                                                      My TT stated my funds would be released on the 18th and I received the Meta Tax pending deposit for $0.00 on the 13th however today is the 18th and NOTHING as been deposited to my account.


                                                                                                                                        I received the Meta test deposit as well and after googling meta taxes or Meta Bank, it stated it will take 7 to 10 days before we receive our deposit. I’m praying it will be on Wednesday.


                                                                                                                                          That’s what I’m trying to figure out after the meta tax test when will they deposit the money or will you have to claim on taxes hate not having no information.


                                                                                                                                            Does anyone know long after the test deposit from Meta Tax are they delivering the stimulus check its so frustrating when a lot of people are having hard time making ends meet and we don’t even know when the help will get here.


                                                                                                                                              TT say refund issued on 1/4/21 but irs portal says information unavailable as of 1/17/21 I have not received any deposit. Received the first stimulus without any issues not sure what’s going on with it!


                                                                                                                                                I got the first one with no problem now it keeps saying no information. Then I got a deposit from meta tax $0.00 in the 13 and nothing hopefully soon I’m losing hope.


                                                                                                                                                  I got the same pending deposit from meta and still never received anything and was wondering will I have to claim on taxes since they said yesterday was the last day of them shipping payments out


                                                                                                                                                    I have the unavailable status but TT say funds issued on jan.4?? Is it true that i have to file taxes

                                                                                                                                                    From Louisiana

                                                                                                                                                      got the same notice in my account, on 1/13/21 from Meta Tax but I still haven’t received anything yet, does anyone know how long does it take to receive it.



                                                                                                                                                        That is a good sign you will get your deposit soon. Republic Taxpayer did a test batch for the IRS. This test batch is supposed to be a precursor to getting your DD. I’m not sure of the timing, but it could be this weekend, fingers crossed.

                                                                                                                                                          I received a deposit from META TAX EIPPRENOTE SAYS $0 this was jan 13 2021 still no stimmy every one i know in TEXAS receive theres except me 😪

                                                                                                                                                          Maddie Fortier

                                                                                                                                                            So I’m confused. I went to irs transcripts it said payment for 1/18/21. Nothing if my info has changed bank wise. So what does this mean. Will I not be getting a stimulus or am I having to file in my taxes.
