Stimulus Checks from the IRS

As U.S. taxpayers resident full time in Mexico and using a Mexican address , we have been awaiting our $1,200 stimulus check from the U.S. Treasury Department as promised by our government in light of the Coronavirus emergency.  Last Week, we received a letter from the Treasury Department dated May 1st informing us that our stimulus checks had been mailed to our address here in Ajijic which is the address we use on our annual income tax returns and have used for some 20 years without issue.  As of yet we have received nothing some seven weeks later which may be understandable considering normal delays in U. S. to Mexico mailings through their respective  post offices.  I would like to know what the experience has been for other full time residents of Mexico who file U.S. federal income tax returns annually.  Have any of you received your stimulus checks yet or, if not, the same notice we received.  Your input would be appreciated.

We received ours via our Mexican MailBox service....2 weeks after being notified that it had been mailed to us.

TOB has pages and pages of pointless comments from people nattering on about their bank account and receipt history. Why? No one needs to know my status. What will come will come.

We have a Mexican address on file with IRS and still haven't received our EIP checks. I just went to Get My Payment on IRS site and was informed that the payment was scheduled (?) to be sent to our Ajijic address on May 22. I followed the links on FAQs and informed that I could send a trace request on the check by filling out IRS form 3911 with specific instructions on how to complete form and where to mail it for our situation.

As I received a mailed notice that our stimulus check had been mailed dated May 1 but received by me in August, I called the IRS to tell them I still had not received that check which was to be mailed to my residence in Ajijic,Jalisco. The IRS representative I spoke to over the telephone was very courteous but told me there was a significant delay in mailing those checks as they had experienced staff shortages due to the Coronavirus epidemic in the states. She suggested that I wait until October to trace the check as the problem may be a post office mail delay and my instituting a trace now would result in the first check being stopped for payment. I decided to continue to wait for the check to be delivered for now and will post here if I receive it. If I do not by late September, I will institute a trace.

Well, Artsnob, if it took them this long to get you your stimulus payment electronically, I guess I can expect a further delay in my mail delivered check here at Lake Chapala. Thanks for posting that information.
