I received the IRS EIP 3rd payment via paper check, but lost it. How does one have check re-issued? Not seeing scenario here on the IRS FAQ site

  • Is the IRS telling you they sent the payment and it never arrived? Was this an electronic deposit or paper check? We need more info to help you. – SRiverNet Mar 30 at 16:22

I found a link on the IRS web site that answers your question (webpage states it is for the first payment, but it should still apply) - IRS Newsroom

Specifically:

you may need to request a payment trace so the IRS can determine if your payment was cashed

If the check was never cashed, they will "credit your account" but will not issue another check.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

    Yep, just looks like I may have to wait a set time before initiating trace. – paulj Mar 31 at 14:33
