According to the Washington Post, The CARES ACT  did not allow the IRS to use bank account information of taxpayers who owed and paid the IRS.

The act only allowed the IRS access to the bank account information of taxpayers who got refunds.

So, ONLY those taxpayers who got refunds got an automatic direct deposit of stimulus money.

If you owed the IRS in the last two years, your bank info doesn't show up for the IRS. You will have to put your info in or wait for a paper check.
