(Meredith) - TurboTax just launched a free online service to help people get their stimulus checks as quickly as possible. 

The new TurboTax Stimulus Center was launched in partnership with the IRS to help individuals who were not required to file a tax return this year or last year receive their stimulus checks.

The website also features a stimulus check calculator where individuals can calculate if they qualify for a stimulus check and, if so, how much it is likely to be for.

It's important to note that the vast majority of people don't need to do anything in order to receive their stimulus checks, according to the IRS.

If you’ve filed a tax return for 2018 or 2019 and your direct deposit information has not changed, you should receive your check in a timely manner. For those who did not need to file returns, though, TurboTax’s stimulus portal offers free registration so those individuals can give the IRS current direct deposit or mailing info. (It’s strongly encouraged to provide direct deposit info in order to receive the money quicker.)

The vast majority of Americans are eligible to receive a stimulus check. Some may receive their checks as early as April 13, while others may be waiting for months.
