WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRPROUD) – Lawmakers in Washington are debating sending out a possible second round of economic impact payments, yet some Americans are still waiting to see the first set of funds hit their bank account.

Americans who received their stimulus payment also receive a letter (FORM 1444 (EN-SP)) detailing receipt.

On Monday, the Internal Revenue Service announced that 3,500 employees will be added as phone support staff at the state and local level to help answer questions. It was unclear if the IRS was referring to new hires or existing staff.
