The deadline to register for an Economic Impact Payment using the Non-filers tool is extended to November 21, 2020.
If you don’t typically file a tax return – and haven’t received an Economic Impact Payment – register soon using the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool on IRS.gov.
This extension is only for those who haven’t received their Economic Impact Payment and don’t normally file a tax return.
The IRS’s Non-Filers tool is secure. You can use it if you’re married with income below $24,400or single with income below $12,200 and can’t be claimed as a dependent by someone else. This includes couples and individuals who are experiencing homelessness. Social Security Benefits and VA recipients, whose only source of income are social security retirement, social security disability, Supplemental security income or SSI, or if you receive Veterans benefits the IRS will automatically issue your economic impact payment to the account in which you receive your benefits. The economic impact payment will be sent to you even if you have a federal income tax debt that is not paid off.
If you began receiving Social Security Income or VA Benefits in 2020 and did not file a tax return for Tax Years 2018 or 2019 you may not automatically receive the economic impact payment. As long as you are not required to file a 2019 Federal Income Tax Return you can apply for the economic impact payment on the IRS website by November 21, 2020 using the Non-Filer Tool. The link to register is called Non-Filers: Enter Your Payment Info here. The link to the IRS website is on our website and can also be found on IRS.gov. You will be able to provide your bank account information if you would like your economic stimulus payment directly deposited into your bank account. If you have filed a 2018- or 2019-income tax return do not register on the non-filer link.
You can speed the arrival of your payment by choosing to receive it by direct deposit. Otherwise, you’ll receive a check or prepaid debit card.
After two weeks, you can track the status of your payment using the Get My Payment tool.
