The deadline to register for an Economic Impact Payment using the Non-filers tool is extended to November 21, 2020. The tool will not be available after November 21.
This extension is only for those who haven’t received their EIP AND don’t normally file a tax return.
The free Non-Filers tool is designed for eligible people who aren’t normally required to file a tax return. Usually, this means people with incomes:
❯ Below $24,400 for married couples who would file jointly
❯ Below $12,200 for singles
This includes couples and individuals who are experiencing homelessness, low-income workers, people with no income, non-dependent students, the unbanked and others. People can qualify for a payment even if they do not have earned income or work.
Usually, married couples filing jointly qualify to receive a $2,400 payment while others normally qualify to receive $1,200. Eligible individuals will receive up to an additional $500 for each qualifying child.
The IRS’s Non-Filers tool is secure.
How do I use the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool?
For those who are not required to file a tax return, the process is simple and only takes a few minutes.
❯ First, visit IRS.gov, and click “Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here.”
❯ Then provide basic information including Social Security number, name, a mailing address where you can receive the payment and confirmation letter and information about qualifying children. Individuals must have a work eligible Social Security number.
❯ The IRS will use this information to confirm eligibility, calculate and send an Economic Impact Payment. No tax will be due as a result of receiving the payment.
❯ Entering bank or financial account information will allow the IRS to quickly deposit the payment directly in a savings or checking account. Otherwise, the payment will be mailed.
Do not use the Non-Filers tool if you have or plan to file a 2019 tax return or if you can be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s 2019 tax return.
After two weeks, you can track the status of your payment using the Get My Payment tool.
The IRS has designated Tuesday, November 10, National EIP Registration Day. This is part of the agency’s final push to encourage everyone who doesn’t normally file a tax return to register to receive an Economic Impact Payment
