IRS Stimulus Check Phone Number

However, the minority that it has not worked for is substantial.

Many people got a letter in the mail this week confirming their payment, but if you didn’t, there could be an issue.

While you won’t find it on the IRS website, there is an actual phone number you can call to reach a human being.

That IRS phone number is 800-919-9835.

I obviously can’t guarantee you’ll get the help you need, but it’s worth a shot!
