Looks like I’m going to be in the large group of folks that won’t get the stimulus directly. For those of that don’t get it by Jan 15, apparently:
If your stimulus payment does not come by Jan. 15, 2021, the only way you can claim it is to [file a tax return](https://www.fool.com/taxes/how-to-file-your-taxes-beginners-guide/) for the 2020 year... If you don't get your money, you can submit a return and claim the tax credit -- which is called the Recovery Rebate Credit. > >
and regarding status on the IRS Get My Payment page:
If you get a message reading "Payment Status #2 - Not Available" you're in the group that will need to submit a return to claim your money. > >
Looking at the calender I just realized that my must-leave date here in Q is Wednesday, Jan 20th, which is Inauguration Day. I’d rather be emplaced somewhere away from civilization in case Civil War 2 enthusiasts go buck wild.
Also, MLK day is Monday, Jan 18th and some places I might want to reprovision at could be closed. This makes Tuesday the 19th the likely candidate. And the dump will even be open that day so I can do that on the way out of town.
