Millions of Americans should start receiving their coronavirus relief checks on Thursday, according to an internal IRS plan obtained by the Washington Post.

The date of delivery for the checks — up to $1,200 in relief money for some Americans — depends on how individuals filed their taxes and if they signed up for direct deposit payments for their tax refund. People could begin receiving their money as early as April 9 to April 14.

The IRS plans to print and mail paper checks to Americans who did not electronically file their taxes. Individuals are set to receive printed checks after April 24.

"Social Security, you'll get it very quickly after [the first round of payouts]. If we don't have your information, you'll have a simple web portal, we'll upload it. If we don't have that, we'll send you checks in the mail," said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin last week.

The money will come from the $2.2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. Around 145 million Americans are expected to qualify for aid.
