Washington (WQOW) - Some Americans may have to wait longer to get their cut of the $2.2 trillion federal relief package.

The IRS reportedly will start issuing direct deposit payments starting April 9.

You'll get a direct deposit payment if you requested a direct deposit for your 2018 or 2019 tax refunds and your payment should arrive by April 14.

If you don't typically file a tax return, the IRS is creating an online portal for you to provide bank account information. Otherwise, you'll be getting a paper check.

Those paper checks are going to take longer and the higher your annual income, the longer it will take.

For example, if you make up to $30,000 a year, you may not get a check until May 8 at the earliest.

If you make up to $90,000, you could be waiting until mid-June.

Anyone making over $200,000 might not see their check until September.
