What to Expect with Stimulus Payments & Tax Information/Refunds

Please keep in mind that all processes are driven by the  IRS and NOT Western Division.  While we do our best to answer your questions, you should use this information provided to inquire on your Stimulus Payment or Tax Information before contacting us directly.

Western Division does not HOLD transaction(s).  When we receive the debit or credit transaction, we post to the appropriate account on the date indicated by the processor.  This cannot be altered.

We ask you for your patience.  Phone and Online Banking demand increases during this time, so you may experience longer hold time and/or delays.

 

Stimulus Payments

The IRS and US Treasury begin sending the stimulus payments (to those who qualify) approximately one week after a BILL is signed.

Direct deposits are sent first for processing, followed by paper checks that are mailed directly to you.
