As we've reported, the IRS created an online tool to check the status of your stimulus check. It went live this morning.

But all day, reports have been coming in from citizens who have had issues with the site. It takes a long time to get through, and many people get a message saying the site "can't determine your eligibility at this time" once they do get through.

CNN is reporting that the Treasury Department suggested checking again because it only updates the tool once daily, usually overnight.
